I always wanted to make a difference around me or do something worthwhile no matter what it takes. I would like to go to a university that offers a top track program, but also has a great academic side, because I want to study medicine. Someday I hope to go on missionary trips and help out the local sick people, but mostly children. My other dream is to compete at track’s highest levels. When I started track in 6th grade I knew from the start that one day I wanted to it for a living, not to make money, but to break records and be the best in my events. I know that I will have to work really hard for that and sacrifice a lot of things, but with God on my side I believe I can do it.
I am not scared of competition because those are the people that help me out the most, they push me to be the best. I know I will never win all my races, but I love this sport because I can go back out there and just leave it all on the track. Even though i'm nervous before events, I know I did my best, no matter the outcome because of the blood, sweat, and tears I have put into it. But at the end of the day, everyone wants to be just as good as the person in front of them, so I believe it's important, in fact part of the sport, that we should respect and be happy for our fellow runners and teammates and their accomplishments.
God has given me lots of talents that I want to use for His glory. Ever since I was little I loved being the best at everything I did and I was, for the most part. I believe this is because of my hard work and effort I put in everyday. Because of that I have never gotten below a B in school and have always had straight A’s since the fourth grade. A lot of things have bumped into me along the way. But as I stay close to God on my good and bad days He always lifts me up. Nothing holds me back for long because I have my eyes on my goal, the bigger picture.
