When I walked into the pool area on my first day of high school swimming practice in seventh grade, I made two goals for myself to accomplish during my high school swimming career: break the Sartell school record of 55.88 seconds in the 100 yard backstroke and win the MSHSL Class A State Championship in that event as well. For six years, I trained everyday with these goals in the back of my mind. After numerous trips to the State meet, I had yet to achieve what I had set out to do. When I qualified for the State meet my senior year of high school, it was my last opportunity to turn my goals into a reality. My senior year State meet was different than previous years.
The sport that I am most well known for is swimming, which I have participated in for all four years of high school. For my senior year, I am the girl 's varsity swim captain. Other than athletics, the clubs that I am involved in are the National Honor Society and the National French Honor Society. To gain entry into the National Honor Society, one has to have a GPA that is a minimum of 3.5 and be immersed in a variety of activities. As for the
I enjoy helping others; I found that through my volunteer service, however, a Lifeguard needs other characteristics to succeed. In early spring of my sophomore year, I began training for the physical demands of the Water Safety Training Class and its prerequisites. Through daily practice, I built my endurance to swim three hundred yards continuously. I concentrated on one dreaded timed event that taxed my physical stamina. It entailed swimming twenty yards, retrieving a ten-pound brick from deep water, and then returning within one minute and forty seconds.
I nearly drowned when I swam into the deep end of my friends pool , my mother had to jump in and pull me out of the water. Immediately afterwards my parents placed me in swim lessons. I struggled with swimming at first, but I persisted and became a strong swimmer. As my skills improved my parents had me join swim teams where I managed to go to the League Championship. Then I decided to apply my skills to lifeguarding.
The number of actions and steps made towards influencing children to actively make healthy decisions make up the organizational strategies of the Boys and Girls Club. The strategies are desired to be implemented inside and outside of the classroom. Specifically at the Boys and Girls Club of Austin, cooperation inside the classrooms requires the support of staff and Club members alike. It is a team effort that needs the time to be taught and

I try my hardest to attend at least one of the two as I am dedicated to other activities like sports, school clubs, and family events. As a captain of my basketball team and soon to be of the soccer team, I am responsible for organizing team events like brunches and dinners also team bonding activities. This past year, the my halldale basketball team had a team ice fishing trip and I organized the activity to take place at my house as it has a lake outback. At the leadership conference, I learned as a student that leaderships main goals are to make the decisions that benefit the majority no matter what people may think. Leadership requires time, effort, and many qualities.
My full name is Angel Jose Garcia, I am 16 years old and I am attending Grace M. Davis high school; I started off freshman year as a chubby kid with no motivation, but as I got a little bit older I have come to change for the better; I am very motivated to succeed and express myself. I enjoy running on my own and in cross country, as well as Teens Run Modesto. I do swimming as a school sport when it comes around, this was my second year doing it and I was team captain. I ran the Modesto Marathon for the first time on March 19, 2017 and got a time of 5 hours and 45 minutes, I know I will get a much better time next year. Apart from running and swimming, I like to participate in school theatre and hanging out with my friends during lunch.
I started the swim program back in 2010 my daughter, Kasey Rein; she wanted me to start it because she knew she would place at State. She was the only swimmer through 2010-11, since no one else knew how to swim. Afterwards high school students started to join swimming. The twins started high school swimming in their freshman year, but swam for King Marlin Swim Club since they were nine years old and had made it to the senior level (highest level) at club swimming.
My first year at Smith College was a whirlwind; I was elected as the freshman class president, rowed in the first boat on the novice crew team, and maneuvered the social and academic changes every freshman undergoes. I learned a lot about myself, such as what environment I succeed in. Most importantly, I learned that although I can excel, I do not thrive in an environment that highlights intense academic rigor. Rather, I envision myself thriving academically and socially advancing at a university that encompasses academics, social life, athletics, and has a large and diverse student body that resides both on and off campus. I attended a very small high school, and I thought I would find comfort in attending a small liberal arts college.
I strive to be as involved in my community as my studies permit. Two years ago, I was selected to attend Pearson College UWC, a school with students from over eighty different countries. It was here than I honed my leadership skills and developed an appreciation for our global community through listening to speakers and through dialogue with my peers. In addition, I further engaged in the outdoors and sustainability. I run the Cross-Training fitness group on campus, as well as being a Kayak Leader.
