One day I would like to go to the Olympics. I will work my hardest to get there, or as close as possible. I have made a few mistakes but each one has taught me a different valuable lesson. I won't stop until I reach my highest potential as an athlete and student.
When I was a freshman and sophomore in high school I partook in IB courses. Some of the grades I earned weren't so strong, however, the IB program taught me different ways to learn and stay ahead of others. I also took college credit medical classes such as field study, where we went to the hospital and performed some of the tasks we learned in class on real patients. I am also enrolled in emergency medical response where you learn to become a certified EMR.
I started to participate in track during sixth grade. I didn't really know how to throw a shotput. I just threw it like a baseball. In eighth grade I broke the school record in shoutput by over 10 feet and I placed 2nd in the county.
I've never had any real coaching experience besides working with an track and field thrower, who taught me a few pointers in the shot and discus events. The most intricate training I have received to date is from participating in the Michigan State University track and field camp in the summer of 2012. I would love to become a better thrower and push my body as far as it can go in training. I'm willing to work hard to become one of the best because I know I have the potential to be the best.
