Hello my name is Allison Baker, I have a very strong work ethic and I am always prepared for the next thing. I've been doing sports since I was about four years old and love playing all sports, especially Soccer and running Cross Country. Sports are very fascinating to me and I enjoy not only participating in them but watching them as well. I take much pride in everything I do in life and what sports I play, always looking for ways not just to improve myself but my team. Hard work doesn't come easy, I work hard for what I have and where my work ethic has gotten me in life. I don't believe things are handed to you, I strongly believe a person should have to earn something for them to be rewarded. A quote I have learned from my coach "Nothing is given, it is earned". A hard work ethic is a very strong characteristic to have in school and especially in sports, I strive hard to show a strong work ethic not just to my coaches, but in life. I have always focused on getting good grades and maintaining a high GPA. Maintaining a high grade point average with sports and school is definitely not easy to do, but I think I have gotten better about learning how to balancing it throughout the years. I have been able to keep a 3.5 GPA from my Freshman to now my Junior year. If I commit to something I stick with it until I finish it, and with that commitment I am very passionate about what I am involved in.
