My collegiate--and life--goals are to be successful in all aspects through hard work, dedication, and determination. I believe that I am a desirable candidate because I would represent the school of my choice with morals and integrity. I bring a sense of strong-willed leadership and school spirit to the plate... Or should I say, "pool." I may have gotten a late start in the world of athletics, but that makes me even more determined to improve myself. Compared to where and how I began, I have grown in leaps and bounds. I continue to better myself in my sport as well as my academic career. I am in the top of my class at Upperman High School, and I would love to leave as Valedictorian.
