The first time I competed in a sport for my school I was in 7th grade when I started Track and Field. Before that, I competed regionally in gymnastics at the Junior Olympic level. I finished my 7th season of gymnastics as a Level 8 and qualified for the Region 5 team that represented Michigan. Gymnastics taught me how to train for hours to reach my goals, how to handle pressure, time management, and how to adapt to different coaching styles.
Track and Field became my passion, with my focus being on Pole Vault. My goal for my Freshman year was to break out of the 10 foot range. I accomplished that goal with a new PR of 11’6”. I will continue to train and compete outdoor and indoor meets until my next high school track season.
My long term goal is to compete Track and Field at the college level while earning my college education in the Health Science field, focusing on Nursing.
