I believe that my perseverance makes me a qualified and valuable member to any prospective program. I started my sports journey when I was young, soccer, lacrosse, but my passion for track and field has deepened over time. It allows me to maintain discipline in other aspects of my life, such as academics. By learning the discipline that track has given me over the years, I have been fortunate enough to gain many academic accomplishments. I consider these some of my biggest accomplishments to date as I value my academics as much as athletics. As I contemplate schools in this process, I hope to find an academically and athletically suitable program for myself that allows me to balance and grow in both of my passions equally.
