I had never really thought about running in college until my junior year when my track coach told me that he believed that I would be able to compete at the collegiate level. After placing 4th and 6th in the 4x100 and 4x200m relays at state, I felt that I possibly could. I was also hundredths from qualifying individually in the 100m and 200m dashes at the regional meet, placing 4th in the 100m and 5th in the 200m. I am a hard worker, and I try to set an example for the younger athletes on the team. I try to encourage them in any way I can. Some days, we lose faith in ourselves, but with a supportive team, we should be able to regain our faith. I maintain mostly A's and sometimes a B, along with a high GPA.
