Freshman year I tore my ACL and meniscus during a soccer game. This injury set me back just not only in soccer but greatly in school as well. Before my surgery I had to go through pre-therapy to prepare my knee for surgery. As soon as pre-therapy started I began to miss school. In previous years I had barely missed any school so missing was hard on me.
One incident I can recount when I experienced failure was when I joined Cross Country. Since, I can remember I have always excelled at everything I did, from my academics to dance class to music lessons. When I entered into my freshman year of high school, I decided I would to join an athletic team in order to keep myself occupied outside of academics. I figured joining a sport would be another good attribute to add to my resume. Initially, my mind was set to join the soccer team.
Cristina profile Many people think that GED students would never be able to get into law school, however Cristina Arriola is on her way to proving that not to be true. Soon to be recognized as the paralegal student of the year by Del Mar, Cristina has come a long way to achieve this honor. At 28, she will given the Outstanding Academic Student award that is given out to one student for each department. While Christina has worked hard for this award, the journey has been anything but easy. She dropped out of high school in 10th grade as she didn’t see “the importance of being in school or getting a degree.” This attitude stuck until Cristina was 18 and miscarried her child at 28 weeks due to an umbilical cord accident.
Anyways, I was going to wait until next year, but my mom pushed me and she told me that I should give it a try. Then I ran for Spirit Commissioner and everything was new for me. I had to learn how the procedures work. First, we had t get at least twenty signatures from the school that are going to vote for me. Then we had to do a poster with a photo of us and the position we are running for.
When I was in my freshmen year of high school I was known as the guy who was too afraid to speak his mind and become more interactive with my years. After over a year of depression and loneliness I was destined to just run away and disappear from the world. That was until my family realize about my problems and decided to put me as part of the youth group known as the Young Peoples Department, where I have desperately tried to avoid, to increase my self-esteem and to motivate me be evolved with my own community. With that booster I was able to explore other groups which includes cooking at my church, ushering, becoming president of my own youth group, and join a group called the Upward Bound. One day I decided to volunteer at an airshow where
In the beginning of my Freshman year, I joined my high school’s rugby team. When I joined the team I had no background knowledge on the rules or how to play rugby. My first rugby season was very frustrating and challenging. Within the first week almost every girl excelled due to their knowledge on proper technique; while I struggled tremendously. I decided to stay and continue to learn how to play rugby because I believe in striving to achieve my desires, but at times I felt stuck in the same place on the same level.
But during my sophomore year in high school, everything didn’tseem togo the way I wantedto be.And it was because of the injury I had, my life completely change since. This long story begins with a goal that I made for myselfduring my freshman year in high school; I wanted to play high school basketball for four years straight, and this goal seems pretty neat for me.Because Texas is a very competitive state for both basketball and football, so making it to the team is not easy. I went to ahigh schoolthat was ranked
I have experienced failure throughout my whole life. Though, the most recent failures I have experienced are when I entered the college. As one of the Best Player of the Year at soccer in high school, I took it for granted thinking that at my level, it would be okay for me not to continue practice soccer for the summer. Instead, I focus my whole summer working at two jobs near my house. As a result, I have learned a lesson the hard way.
I’m interested in joining the Student Wellness Commission because I strongly believe that health, both mental and physical, is of the utmost importance and I want to encourage other students to recognize this as well. Starting as early as middle school and lasting about halfway through high school for me, the intense culture of competition was detrimental to my overall wellbeing‒ I was constantly tired and on the verge of breaking down because I neglected my body’s basic needs for an adequate amount of sleep and a healthy diet. It took me until the end of my sophomore year of high school to realize that though my classmates would engage in near-bragging contests to see who was getting less sleep due to strenuous homework loads and extracurricular
We won some games, and we lost games, but we did it together. In the beginning of the season, rumors of doubt spread about our team being too short, or not good enough. A Lewistown High School team had not won a Regional Championship since the year 2002, but against all doubts, I knew my team could win. Not only had I seen their mistakes, along with my own, throughout this season, but I also watched them grow as athletes and individuals. The first round of regionals approached and we were given the name of the team we would play for the first game.
