In the future I hope to play lacrosse in a college that both supports me athletically and academically. Although my decision isn’t final, in the future I would like to take part in either an animal science job or interior design. Academics are a very important part of my life and I take them very seriously. I will always put in the time and effort into both school and sports. Currently I play field hockey, basketball and lacrosse. I made first string varsity field hockey this year as a freshman, but haven’t started my lacrosse or basketball season yet this year. Even though I love all of my sports, lacrosse has inspired and fulfilled me the most. I have been playing lacrosse for about 7 years and have grown to love and appreciate the sport more and more. I would make a good candidate for your team because I am willing to put in the effort to be my best possible self. I give 110% effort every time I pick up my lacrosse stick, whether it’s in practice or in a game. This makes me different from other students because I will always persevere and work hard, even when there are tough times. I believe that I am a teammate that helps lead my team by example. For example when the coaches give me suggestions and things to work on, I would happily take their tips and begin practicing them, without any resentment. In addition, I always work to push others to be their best self, because lacrosse is a team sport and when we are all playing our best, great things will come.
