Going to third round of playoffs was a great experience for me as a freshman, but being captain my sophomore year, was an eye opener. It showed me what it takes to be a leader among upperclassmen. This helped me grow as a person and focus not only on my sport but on time management to keep up with the demands of being a student athlete in high school. It taught me discipline and showed me that if I want something I have to go after it and get it.
This year even though I achieved Team Captain, First Team all District and an MVP, I still realized the improvements I need to make. I have attended various goal keeper training camps and I'm still honing my skills as an athlete. As a person and employee, I have been put into a position of leadership at work where I must respond to first aid emergencies under pressure and confront angry parents on a daily basis. At my other job, I am to minister to children and keep the two and three years old calm and collected until there parents come to pick them up. With all the skills and experiences that I have gained and a desire to learn more, I believe I can bring value and leadership to your university academically, athletically and socially.
