My name is Lauryn Weber, I am from a military family. I became interested in Taekwondo when I was five years old developing in sparring and poomsae leading into a second degree blackbelt at 12. I realized prior to my seventh grade year, I began to develop a passion for a team sport. I became interested in volleyball, and tried out making varsity my 7th and 8th grade school year. Our 7th grade varsity team went undefeated, however my 8th grade year was a learning curve. Though my team did not achieve an undefeated year, I've learned that no matter how many errors made there is room for growth and improvement. In the midst, I learned to become both a better person and team player through channeling positivity in understanding that sometimes mistakes happen, but being open minded, coachable, having a good work ethic, practicing hard, endure rigorous training, maintain integrity, and endurance benefits not only myself but supporting the team.
Learning has always been critical in my life. I find myself advancing through participating in private lessons, group lessons, and camps. Not only do I extend my athletic ability and knowledge to volleyball but I balance my academics through maintaining a 4.0 GPA or higher. I am focused on a college who fulfills both my academic and athletic goals. Ever since I was young, I found myself contributing by accepting opportunities to assist students with academics from 3rd to 5th grade. I participated in the NJHS program in middle school which offered opportunities to help with positivity and teacher appreciation. I have the confidence to meet challenges and the ability to be open-minded while giving 100%.
