Since I could stand up and walk on my own two feet, I have been involved in a plethora of youth sports. Volleyball in particular has had the biggest impact on me and had shaped the woman that I am today. I partake in volleyball activities a majority of the week; consequently, volleyball is very big part of my identity. While some believe that youth sports are a scam and are meant to just dry up the pocket of parents, I really believe that youth sports have taught me important skills that will help prepare me for the life ahead. Amongst the many skills, the ability to balance my athletics with my academics by far is something that has really prepared me for any challenge that I may face later.
I have never been the best volleyball player out there. However, that has never stopped me from working to be the best player I can be. I have spent hours in the gym doing private lessons to work with a coach one on one to improve my game. I have spent hours with personal trainers working to improve my speed, jumping, strength, and all the things that come becoming a better athlete. Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team.
Because of Missy 's mindset her coach had stuck with her. Her good attitude throughout the sport encourages and helps her and her teammates to try to become the best athletes possible. "And the swimming star has also had an effect closer to home, as her team-mates reveal how the 17 year-old 's high spirits spur them on to try and match her standards." () A constructive outlook has helped Missy come to the point she is currently at. It has also continued to push her and her teammates to score better and always compete.
I knew I would become close with my team since I spent so much time with them, but then I realized even once volleyball was over, they would still be my family. This year as varsity setter, I knew I had to take on the responsibility of leadership. I did not realize however, that I would become the team mom at the same time. My responsibility was to make sure everyone on my team kept their heads up and stayed confident because I believed in them. In the beginning of my last season I told myself that I needed to put forth one hundred percent effort every
Not only does this apply to cheerleading, but will apply when I graduate. Most importantly, cheerleading taught me that my team is family. When I spend everyday practicing with a group of girls and guys the bond becomes unbreakable. I learned that family extends farther than the people I am related to and includes teammates, coaches, and fellow gym
I will do this by bringing my gear to every practice and game. Fairplay: I used the interpersonal skill fair play by giving the ball to Laura because she hadn’t had a shot on goal even though I only had one and wanted to practice shooting some more. This benefitted my team as we all had turns shooting and this means that we will be stronger as a team when it comes to the playoffs.
One important goal for me is to go to college so I can have a good education, become more social, and find something I want to do when I grow up. (5) First, education gives us a knowledge of the world around us and changes it into something better. Going to college will give you a better chance of having a good education which will then turn into you being a more educated and sophisticated person. I think being a more intelligent human by going to college will make you more well rounded when it comes to life and anything else that you try to achieve. Another reason to have a good education is to learn more about the world we live in.
I believe others will want a meaningful relationship with me in the future now that I am becoming a better me, I hope to positively influence my little brother and cousins so they do not go down the same path that I did. Im hopeful that me graduating college and becoming an orthodontist will inspire anybody that is looking up to me to take this same path of furthering their education and getting into a career they love, and not start out adulthood the same way I
The summer of my junior year I had a severe injury which made me led me but no choice to let go of my other sports and my after school music activities. It was a burden on my shoulders because I loved doing all the activities but in the end, it was all about getting better grades, improving my playing skills and most importantly for me to get healthy again. I worked through the difficult times so I could be there for my team. Teamwork was possibly the most valuable lesson I learned from Lacrosse. Learning to work together with other individuals to achieve a common goal is a skill that I have used and will continue to use, for the rest of my life.
We first-borns are perfectionists, consequently, we feel the pressure to be the best. I always felt like I had to set an example for my younger sister. I wanted her to look up to me with pride, so ever since I was little I tried to be good to my parents, teachers, and friends. I dedicated myself to everything I did, like school and sports. I gave it all my best effort so I could inspire my sister to do the same.
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future. I not only work hard in my classes but I also participate in sports which gives me the experience of being a leader.
I feel as if I could do great things in the sports media world some day, all the while loving my job. My most positive high school experience would have to be either getting accepted into my school 's prestigious National Honors Society program or achieving a 4.2 G.P.A the first semester of Junior year. The NHS program was hard to get into, but I was
