I have been participating in the sport of Track and Field for 6 years. As I grew older, my passion for the sport expanded as I gained more experience. Since entering high school, a goal of mine has been to run track at the collegiate level. Maturing during the odd circumstances of the world in the past two years reinforced the importance of the sport in my life, and has helped me come to the decision of committing to the goal of pursing a college track career.
My character has been shaped by my unique athletic opportunities. I've participated in many sports outside of track and field over recent years, but competing on the international and national levels within the sport of jump rope has molded me into the athlete I am. Receiving world titles at national competitions and being granted a spot on the American National Jump Rope team has taught me the cycle of opportunity and reward you gain from hard work. In addition, competing at high stakes from such a young age taught me how to develop maturity and a sense of calm whilst maintaining competitive drive and spirit.
Outside of sports, I maintain a 4.375 GPA at school, and participate in as many extracurriculars as I am able to. I am a member of National Honor Society and Key Club, as well as my school's individual "Junior Cabinet" that mainly helps to plan events for our senior class. Outside of club activities, I sing in my school's select Chamber Choir. Participating in important school organizations, as well as groups I just enjoy being a part of, has taught me the balance between athletic and academic drive, and importance of building other interests. My love for the sport shines above that of other groups I participate in, and I seek to pursue this passion on the collegiate level.
