I never knew track would be apart of me and taken so far as it was taken for me , however track itself for me gave me a new outlook when I ran at The 5A 2019 UIL State Championship as a freshman . Of course this would be a very exciting experience for me, unfortunately, it wasn't . For my individual event , the 100M dash , I false started and fell under the pressure of doing well , however if were being honest I wasn't nervous at all . After that moment it just felt like my momentum of being successful and winning just stopped .I knew after that meet , I must work even harder and rebuild myself to be better. I know I had to continue and train to be the best version of myself that I possibly can be, and refine my fastest times with even faster ones . I can be competitive at times .I now continue to train and work hard to achieve success and I will continue off into my college career and even further. I will do my very best, that's all I really am capable of doing. Even being in high school now , I'm finally starting to find myself and grow better as an individual with passions of Arts and Technology (Digital Media ) while being a student athlete .Whether it's academics or athletics, I want to flourish in any field of business I wish to pursue.
Me as an athlete I believe I am different than most , from my mindset I'm not a typical athlete .As an African American women my interests and hobbies are different than majority in my community . This has lead to some road blocks of me making friends to even the ladies on the track with me . At times I do feel out of place in track and field , however it makes even better when I do win due to the fact I'm bringing something different . A different perspective ,a different energy ,just something not common in an athlete.
I may have my own doubts and my self-esteem may not be so high but in this competitive path of life , I dictate my future.It doesn't matter if I'm anxious of the other talented women at the line with me ,it doesn't matter of the long hours of being a student athlete ,and it doesn't matter that many people don't understand me or my mind set or goals . If I have the passion and ability to do something , nothing should get in my way.My future is to be happy and successful, with me being the more reserved blunt person that I am, I will be realistic and genuine to go as far as my track career will take me.
