Personal Statement

Hi, my name is Kayla Gibson and I would like to introduce myself.

I am 19 years old and graduating in June 2017 with my AA degree in Kinesiology.  Although I have always loved to run, my track career began in the 9th grade and I received no coaching or training until I entered high school. I ran Varsity track all four years of my high school career and was team captain my senior year in high school. In 9th and 10th grade I ran the 100 and 200.  In the 11th grade I started my 400 career.  In the summer between 11th and 12th grade I ran track unattached with the USATF and I qualified for the Junior Olympics in the 400 and 800.  I am currently running at Mt SAC , a junior college,  In our conference I took second place in the 400 and our 4x400 relay team took first place. I finished 4th in the 400 in the Southern California Community College championship and our 4x400 finished third.  I am.very proud of these accomplishments but feel very confident that there's a lot more speed in me to be drawn out. I know that I will be an asset to your team as I am very versatile.  I can run the 200, 400 and/or 800 depending on where your need is.   I am a very hard worker and I listen to and trust my coaches knowledge and wholeheartedly follow their instructions.  

I am a good student with a GPA of 3.3. My major will be in Kinesiology or Exercise Science as I am interested in educating obese children on fun ways to exercise and how to find nutritional foods that they'll enjoy eating. 

I have been a member of AVID (Advancement Via Individual Development) all four years of high school.  This has really helped to prepare me for college level classes.

In my junior year I founded and became the president of the Foreign Exchange Student Club at my high school.  I established this club so that foreign exchange students could meet and feel comfortable with other students and learn about American culture and teach other members of the club aobut foreign cultures.  It has been a win-win situation.

Also in my junior year I became a Link leader with Link Crew, which is a peer helper group that helps incoming freshmen become acclimated to high school life.

I am also a proud participant in many community service activities such as serving meals to the homeless, singing in the youth choir at church and nursing facilities, serving meals at church for our senior citizens, kitchen clean up responsibilities at church, putting shoeboxes gifts together for children in Africa and extensive volunteer work at a local day care facility. 

I plan to consider colleges that are a good match for me academically.   I am extremely passionate about track and will give 100 percent to both my academic and track career throughout my college career.  I believe that I am well-prepared to handle both academics and track!!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me!
