Personal Statement

I have always been a runner. When I was little, that is all I did and wanted to do. My mom had to hold my arm, or even my ponytail, when we went places because I would just take off. She started  to put me in half mile kid races so I could do what I always wanted, run. My first race was the San Diego Rock-n-Roll Kids Race when I was seven years old and I haven't stopped since. I remember that race    like it was yesterday. I came in 2nd overall and 1st girl.

Running in middle school and high school has helped me develop as a runner and as a person. To be a runner, you have to work hard, be committed, never give up, and push higher than your limits. My experiences in middle school and high school have checked all of those boxes, which is what I love about being part of a school athletic program. The person that you are is just as important as the talent a person has to be on a college team. You have to have a good work ethic and attitude to be part of a team. I have those characteristics in me and I know that I would be a great choice to run for a college program.

I want to graduate college with a Veterinary Medicine Degree and become a veterinarian. This has always been my passion since I was little because I love animals so much. I know it will take a lot of hard work, but it will be worth it. School and sports are my balance. There is nothing better than going for a run with friends just letting it all go. Everything that I am doing now for school and on the track are preparing me for college.
