Personal Statement

If I am being completely honest, I didn't know if I wanted to go to college to continue my track and field career.  I didn't even know if college was right for me. I have always had a hard time in school. I have ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome, that causes me to get overwhelmed in certain situations easier than others, I have a hard time staying focus and on task, and it has taken up a huge portion of my life. I was diagnosed at age 8 with Aspergers, this is now known on the spectrum as Autism One. I had no idea what was going on, I was so young. I was constantly on and off medications that were supposed to help, I didn't know what else to think except that this is my life and this was normal. Now looking back, if my parents had not been so devoted to helping me out in any and every way that they could, I would not be the same person I am today. I still have my days that I struggle with, everyone has days like that. I want to try and move on to the next step after high school and on to the next step in my track career. I am dedicated to my sport and have always had such a drive for  competition. 6 years ago, I never would have thought that I would be excelling in a sport, I had no desire to do any sports, I would be a manager here and there but there was no motivation to become an athlete. I love being a leader and a mentor to all the underclassmen and middle schoolers that are competing in throwing. I love having younger kids come to me and look at me as an inspiration and role model. I like to think that everything happens for a reason. Just thinking about not doing the sport I love makes me wonder what I would have been like. This sport is my life and I have no idea what I would do without it.
