I have been playing the game of Lacrosse for 4 years now. I always give more than 100 percent in practices, scrimmages, and games. I have great stick skills, with the ability to utilize both hands. I am very strong willed. I have great hustle and will run myself beyond my limits. I always try to be a role model/ leader for my teammates. I believe, "True leaders don't create followers, they create more leaders" - Tom Peters. I try to accomplish this quote with my teammates.
When I say that I am a leader, I believe being a leader also means encouraging and supporting others not only on the field but also in the classroom. I was involved in Student Government and was class president for a year. I was also involved in National Junior Honor Society and was treasurer for a year. I am currently involved in accelerated classes, and JROTC, by maintaining a high GPA. I have had the honor of being part of these academic clubs in my school and have developed my sense of leadership, being a team player, and many more life skills.
College is another big exciting step in my life. I will work hard academically and in lacrosse to maintain a once in a life time opportunity. I am very open to many options. I am hoping to find a college that has the same idealisms and expectations that I strive for. I aspire to become a great role model to my peers to strive for greatness. Family means everything to me and all I want to do is make them proud to repay the amount of sacrifice they have all made for me. I believe this amazing opportunity will do the trick !
