I am a junior at Viera High school in Florida. I recently moved to Florida and previously ran at Fountain Valley High School in California. I was a scoring runner on Fountain Valley's Varsity State cross country team and a Varsity Distance Runner for track. I aspire to be a NICU nurse after college. I am very interested in biology and medical sciences.
As a runner, I want to run in college and improve my times each year. When people ask me why I run, I answer with “I run because I can run.” I was given a special talent that not a lot of people have and I want to make the most of it. Along with being able to run, I also I love the community of the sport; the people, coaches, and especially my teammates. Running creates a special type of bond that no other sport can compare. My teammates have become a second family to me. This sport is physically and mentally challenging but I love the sense of responsibility, confidence, and mental toughness that comes along with it over time.
