Personal Statement

I started my wrestling career when I was in Kindergarten. Being a four year old and being new to something is a challenge. As soon as I stepped on that mat, I was hooked on the sport. My dad used to wrestle throughout his high school career and placed top four at Prep School Nationals. My father is the reason why I am here today because he put me on the mat as a young child and he always motivated me at big tournaments throughout my career. I have always gotten picked on growing up my whole life. From being picked on all the time, it has given me so much motivation to keep going and don't think about the issues too much. I took all of my anger out in my practices which ultimately made me a better person and a better wrestler as well. As a wrestler, You can learn so much about yourself. I have learned that I am a dedicated, motivated, and hardworking student-athlete. I am a very outgoing and friendly kid. Being outgoing is hard to control for me, but all of my friends like me the way I am. Something interesting about me is that I can build something without looking at the instructions, but looking at a picture of what it is supposed to look like. Academically I wish to get to many AP classes or honors classes, while in college, I am really interested in sports marketing.
