She showed me the beautiful sport of soccer when I was six years old and I've loved it ever since. Over the years it has become harder and more stressful, but I have learned to make sacrifices in life. I have missed out on some of the most exciting experiences in high school from homecoming, to state championship games, but these were sacrifices I had to make to better myself and my game. The biggest challenge I face is losing friendships. It is difficult to maintain friendships due to being gone for four out of the seven days a week.
He confronted my dad and told him that he believed I had what it takes to play in a more competetative league, Lacrosse Northwest. He told my dad that his daughter, Galena Clark, had played with the Rippers before and had had a wonderful experience. At first, my dad was hesitant about letting me play at such a competative level, but after talking to me about it, he realized that lacrosse was something I truly loved and wanted to become better at, so he let me sign up for tryouts for the 2017-18 travel team. Of course, I was excited for this, but I was also extremely nervous, so I did the only thing I knew would relive the stress: I started going down to that little green-gray wall and playing wallball almost every day, just like I had done in the offseason. I worked on everything I knew I needed to improve, especially using my left hand to pass accurately and catch confidently.
It all seemed great, but was I ready or would I ever be ready to see people in their worst days? It took me a whole year in college to realize that firefighting was something I did not want to pursue. Desperately looking for a new major, I started to consider teaching, but purely for selfish reasons. However, somewhere during my second year of college, there was a significant spark that led me to want to pursue teaching for a different reason. In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial.
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.
Growing up, I spent most of my time playing sports and trying to stay active as much as possible. As I got older, I became more serious with field hockey, and I was determined to make the varsity team my junior year of high school. All summer I spent working on my stick skills on the field, and my endurance in the gym in order to do everything I could to make the varsity squad. When tryouts started in the end of August, I hadn’t performed the way I wanted to, and girls I thought had no chance of making the team, played so well over the three days. However, I was hopeful I still had a shot on the varsity roster.
Playing with her for 3 years was one of the best experiences for me because I was challenged by her hard work ethic every day in practice and got to guard her every single day. Being on the court with her for every practice made a huge impact on my game because she was such a phenomenal player to play against/with. I do not have a specific story with her, but just creating a relationship with her inside and outside of basketball helped me get to know an amazing person on a greater level.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I’ve spent hundreds of hours working with my peers, building friendships while working toilsomely to perfect one show each year.
Leigh Ann had been a cheerleader and her daughter Collins was cheerleader for the football team at school. To integrate Michael even more they want him to play football. After seeing him on a training session they found out that Michael had never done much sports in his life. The biggest reason why they took him in on the team was because he was big and strong but, they start think about if it was a good choice to do that and it was the trainer Coach Cotton who had started all this because it was him that wanted Michael to start on this school. Coach Cotton was about to give up Michael something that Leigh Ann could not accept.
Each day that passes, I get more passionate and excited about my future as a medical student, and eventually a surgeon. Up until my junior year of high school, I didn’t know what type of surgeon I wanted to be. I was assigned a junior project, where I researched schools, and most importantly my career plans. That’s when I decided that a reconstructive plastic surgeon is what I wanted to become. I am a perfectionist and I like to take my time so that I can take pride in my work.
Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be successful in life. I have always wanted to be the better version of my parents and achieve many things in life. During my freshman year in High school, I knew I was going to major in business. I come from a household of five, my father, mother, two younger sisters, and myself. I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters.
These words were engraved in my head during my first day of high school. However, I ignored them and pursued my own objectives. In my freshman year of high school, I was the founder of the lacrosse club at my school. Apart from having a rigorous school schedule filled with honors classes, and being involved in football and FBLA, it was my responsibility to bring the club to life. I discovered my math teacher used to play college lacrosse, and I had always been interested in lacrosse.
She went to school at Hope college to play golf.I would like to give a big thanks to all of the things that she does. Hard work pays off. When my mom was in high school, she was diagnosed with a learning disability. She had to work extra hard just to keep her grades up which I would imagine that had to have been a lot of studying. She has always told me to work very hard at what you do and to never give up.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to work in the medical field. Freshman year of high school, I joined Student Athletic Training at my school because it exposed me to medical injuries in high stress situations. Even though I was working with an athletic trainer and loving it, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do; I switched from wanting to be a pediatrician to an oncologist and then an orthopedic surgeon. I settled on becoming an OBGYN because I had just watched my sister give birth to her son. I thought that delivering babies had to be the most important job because I’d be taking care of new life.
It was, however, the type of job that everyone dreams of, a job that I enjoyed almost more than anything. During the summer and fall seasons I practiced four days during the week and traveled to tournaments every weekend. I continued to practice throughout the winter with my tournament team and in the spring I played for my high school team. Over the years I made amazing memories and, along with my tournament team, won several Maryland State Titles. Softball is a sport that has taught me so many important life lessons including teamwork,
My parents perpetually encourage me to have a commitment to education, it enables knowledge, power, and freedom. They teach me to go after my dreams, and always remind me “Nothing comes easy, you must work hard for your goals.” When I first came to the U.S, I was too young to understand my educational disadvantages. Throughout the years, I relentlessly worked hard to excel in my academics, my persistence allowed me to consistently exceed expectations. In the spring of my freshman year, I was selected as a National Honor Society student by my school. This has been my biggest accomplishment.
