From a very young age, I was taught that to succeed in any aspect of life you need to work hard and help others. Whether that be in track and field, volleyball, softball or the classroom. I am a part of my school's Project RISE organization, in this program, I mentor and assist in overcrowded classrooms at the middle school. I also have coached a fifth-grade and an eighth-grade volleyball team since I was a Freshman. Next school year I will also be a freshman retreat leader, because of this I have attended many leadership conferences over the course of highschool. I partake in these events because as a community we are a family, and by bettering other students and student-athletes we better our communities.
As an athlete, I have Participated in 9 years of volleyball amounting to being on the varsity roster 3/3 years and a member of the 2019 10th grade All-State AAU team as a Freshman. In softball, I was also a part of our varsity team for two years, advancing to state both years. But track has always been my greater love since I began participating in the 7th grade. In Middle School I achieved 2 conference wins in the discus as well as winning state my eighth-grade year and breaking the record with 110'. At the beginning of my sophomore year, I underwent shoulder surgery to repair my labrum, this showed me the importance of hard work and dedication in the weight room as well as in the ring. I placed second in conference, first in my district, and 13th in the state just eight months after my procedure.
In my future I want to become an accountant, I have developed a love for numbers over the years. I am uncertain where I want to continue my athletic and academic path as of now.
