Mental toughness and the ability to overcome adversity are two major factors in tennis. Mental toughness and the ability to overcome adversity are also two of my strong factors. Lacking resources other tennis players may have, I managed to compete with all players on all levels. I managed to become the #1 single player for my team and earned Academic All-State status. These traits will continue to serve me well as I pursuit a Nursing career. Furthermore, there may be a more talented player but no player will out work me. My determination and fire to compete on the next level will provide a positive impact in regards to academics, social, and the team. Through strong work ethic and strong character, I'm positive I will reach my goals.
