I am a very optimistic person which is one of my strongest traits. In turn this helps me when my team is really struggling and need a good kick start. Since I have been playing soccer and basketball my time management has really been tested at times. Soccer for me has made the biggest impact on my leadership in the classroom, which has lead me to be included in our annual Brighten Initiative Leadership workshop at my high school. Also, I was nominated for Athletes Committed to Excellence, a program at my school for building leaders to unite and help create a positive drug-free athletic environment. After applying and interviewing I was one of ten athletes chosen to be a part of the leadership council. Academically, I like to look for a challenge, a new way to test my knowledge and capacity of my brain.
