Being an athlete takes raw talent, drive and time management in a busy life. Throughout my career as an athlete at Sutton Memorial high school I have participated in some of the most demanding sports including cross country indoor and outdoor track. Being on these teams for over six years I have had the honor of seeing legends rise and fall. Athletics are important but academics are still crucial to my future, and my secondary education. I have recently been accepted and admitted to Bryant university to enroll in their accounting/ CPA program to complete my interests in business and enable my future career as an accountant.

During Spring Quarter of 2017, I had the opportunity to volunteer in a program called Conversation Partner Program through my diversity study class. In this program, I conversed with my partner, who was new in the United States, on a weekly basis. Each week, we talked about our cultures, interests, and hobbies. As this program helped my partner practice English, it also helped me gain self-esteem and confidence to express myself openly about what my academic and personal challenges were to the people who know me best.
