I always knew I wanted to compete collegiately, but up until the year of 2019, I did not know what sport I would compete in. It wasn’t until my freshman year of high school that I knew I wanted to compete in track and field. I found my passion when I competed my first triple-jump. I knew I wanted to commit to it right away and try to better myself in that event in every way I could.
Two of my biggest goals are to compete collegiately and to graduate with a college degree. Although I am not set on a specific major yet, my interest is going into a field of sports communications and journalism. One thing I have learned about myself through track and field is if you work hard enough and really want it, big rewards and experiences will come your way. During my freshman year, I worked the hardest I could have because I wanted to place in the top three in my conference, and I placed third. As well as a hard worker, I am organized, dedicated, and committed. I am constantly giving my all during workouts, practices, and meets while also being there to help and support my team in any way I can. I am also organized, dedicated, and committed to my academics. I am currently enrolled in all honors classes and thrived in the honors courses I took freshman year and am part of the National Junior Honor Society, as well. My goal for high school academics is to graduate in the top 10% of my class by completing both honor level and advanced placement courses.
Two major things that have influenced who I have become today are gymnastics and family, as well as friends and coaches. These details taught me many skills such as discipline, dedication, teamwork, respect, and many other skills. It taught me how to work hard and how to go after what I want. My family, my friends, and my coaches have always been the ones to support me and help me make the best decisions for myself. In college, my goal is to graduate with a college degree and be fully invested in both academics and athletics because they are both very important.
