To be honest, college sports was never on my list of "goals" for college. My main focus was going into college, getting my Bachelor's in Nursing, get certified, and begin the career I've been wanting to accomplish since I was 6 years old. However, my aspirations quickly changed when I first tried out for track and field in 6th and 7th grade. I found a love for it and continued on training for it every day. When I was in 8th grade, I broke the middle school record for javelin; I beat it by 6 ft and 5 inches. This is what really triggered the want for college track and field. I didn't go out for track my first year of high school though. However, I came back my Sophomore year and went to state for the 400 meter relay and won 2nd place. Even though we won, I still didn't like it. My real goal was to come to Hayward Field, not in sprinting spikes, but javelin shoes. I met with a few coaches, put in another month or two of training and during the season as well, and set a personal record of 97 ft flat. I had my chance to go to state, but the weather was not in my favor. Instead, freshman went. Of course I congratulated her, but I knew that I had to train 110 times harder next season. During the summer, I received a call from Harding University in Maine. They were interested in me and wanted to see me throw in the 2016 season. From that point, I worked out every morning, ate healthier, and watched training videos on how to do proper form. I will go to state this year. I can feel it.
