My name is Emersyn Walker and I am a Junior at Charles Wright Academy. My goal is to continue to maintain my GPA at a 3.5 or higher throughout high school and in college. Charles Wright Academy is a college preparatory school. I have worked very hard to maintain my GPA at a very challenging school.
I have been playing golf my entire life and love the game. I started to play tournament golf when I was 8 years old with the Washington Junior Golf Association. I practice every day throughout the spring and the summer. During the fall and winter, I play volleyball and basketball for my high school, yet manage my time to continue to practice throughout the winter months. I have worked extremely hard this spring and lowered my handicap from a 1 to a +1.5. I am outgoing, sociable, competitive, and mentally tough. I absolutely love to compete in any sport.
My motto in life is "Love God. Love others," and I feel that I represent this within my character every day. I am often referred to as an "old soul" and am told that I am wise beyond my years. I am grateful for my parents and for all of the sacrifices they have made along the way.
I feel that with my mental strength, persistence, care for others, and hardworking nature, I will be a great asset to a collegiate golf team. In the years to come, I will be focusing on mental toughness and staying in the moment. I look forward to playing collegiate golf and earning my degree. I have many career paths I am interested in, but most of all I would like to be a pastor, gospel singer, a prosecution lawyer, or a sports psychologist.
