Growing up academics was a huge priority as it is for many students today. Although, I have always had an enormous passion for swimming. The guiding light of my journey as a swimmer all began with my older brother, Aaron. Similar to myself Aaron began swimming at a very young age. He was also very good at the sport.
Work hard, push yourself, put the time in, and stay determined and you can do great thing in life. This was something my parents told me repeatedly throughout my childhood. When they would tell me this I never really believed them. However, many years later I realized that their words could not be more true. It was the fall of my junior year in high school, I was almost done with the swimming season.
Here at the Saratoga Springs chapter of NHS, we place tremendous value in the efforts of individuals to not only make a difference that they wish to see but also inspire others to do the same. With this in mind, it is my pleasure to introduce our guest speaker, Mr. Dave Brown. A graduate of Le Moyne University, Mr. Brown has become one of the most respected and highly regarded members of our Saratoga Springs Community. Whether teaching about his favorite President, James K. Polk, or dauntlessly leading his girls volleyball team into a sectional match, I have never failed to see Mr. Brown give less than one hundred percent. In my experience in his United States History course, I saw Mr. Brown’s ability to connect with each of his students.
When Crosby said,” The best way for me to lead is through my game.” Sydney Crosby is the leader of his team and has continually shown he is the leader by playing to the best of his abilities and his hard work shows off. Sydney Crosby continues to put fans in amazement as he plays well throughout each year and that is why Crosby is considered the best forward the NHL has
To switch to a new sport suddenly, just for a day, and immediately break a record in it—that was about as neat a trick, as dazzling a reversal as I could, to be perfectly honest, possibly imagine”(Knowles p.45). The fact that Finny is not a member of the swim team, and yet is able to beat the swimming record on his very first attempt, certainly exhibits his athletic prowess. It shows that he not only excels in sports that he regularly plays, but also in the activities that he attempts simply out of curiosity or for fun. The pool incident, however, also provides the reader with additional information about Finny. Because Finny chooses to attempt to break the school record in a nearly deserted pool, the reader is able to see that Finny is not seeking after the recognition that comes with achievement.
All that hard work paid off by getting into her dream school. I also looked up to my dad as a role model because he was also a hard worker himself. My dad would wake up early every morning to workout at the YMCA. After working out at the YMCA, he would go to work until five or six o 'clock in the evening. When he had inventory at the end of each month, he would come home later at night,
I and the lifeguards from the Wytheville Community Center worked as a team to save a life of someone we have never met before. Our reward from working as a team gave the teenage boy another chance at life. This is the greatest reward that I have ever received. Some rewards from teamwork are big and some are small, but the true reward is working as a team. I and the team of lifeguards that made the save that day later received a Hero Reward from the Town of Wytheville and got to meet the teenage boy we had
I have faced many challenges in my life, but none have been as significant as my concussions. My concussions changed me; I found that I was not as indestructible as I thought I once was. The concussions opened my eyes to the "unfairness" of life. It was the summer of my freshman year. I had been competing in water polo all year long and we were in the middle of summer training.
Freshman year I began volleyball and was able to do so while still maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I continued this sport into sophomore year as a Co-Captain of the team. I was told by my volleyball coach that the reason I was given this role was due to my leadership skills, and my ability to responsibly execute the coach 's expectations for the team. Throughout volleyball season of sophomore year, I still maintained a 4.0
Our coach is a strong believer that in order to be successful as a team, it is important to support each other like a family. This familial atmosphere and support that I received from my fellow teammates was the reason I went to compete at OFSAA my first year of wrestling. Not only did I earn a spot at OFSAA that year, I also competed at the Cadet/Juvenile Provincial Championships. Although, I did not place at this tournament, it was an excellent learning experience that I will never forget. In grade 10, I earned the Marauder award for wrestling, which was a true honour, simply because most of the time the Marauder award and the MVP award are usually given to a grade 12 on the team.
Additionally, I believe that success is being able to pick yourself up when you fail and seeing what were the reasons for your failure and being able to use failures as an example of what not to do next time and share your experiences with other people in the same position as you, so they do not make the same mistakes. Also, having a strong mindset that never falters in addition to always believing that you can do anything you can put your mind to helps tremendously with being a successful person. An example of success in my life is receiving Spanish Department Student of the Month in high school. I feel that I received this award from my Spanish teacher, Sr. Hernandez due to working hard in the class when I did not believe that I could pass the class as well as not giving up on myself, along with always knowing that I can do anything as long as I have a positive mindset. Another example of success in my life is completing my first year of college at Chico State well without any huge setbacks.
Franklin 's enthusiastic attitude is a great attribute she has that sets her apart from and makes her better than other athletes. Coaches are willing to continue training Franklin, and help her because of her positive approach through everything she does. For example, her coach "who began coaching Franklin with the Colorado Stars when she was 7" (John Meyer, Denver post article) has stuck with her for over a decade. He has done this because coaches love athletes who listen to them! He realizes that he will see results from the time and commitment he has put in with Missy.
Although I have never worked in a library, I believe that my skills and experiences make me an exceptional candidate for this position. During my internship this summer at the Office of Chief Medical Examiner(OCME), my main duty was to contact numerous people to endure that their requests were being upheld on our end at the OCME. This greatly improved my communication skills with other people because although some people may be difficult, one always has to remain professional. In addition, I had to maintain the __ of the cases that I was handling. Granted that I have all these individual qualities, being on the cheer team, in high school and in college, has taught me how to be reliable and how to work collectively with others.
Jordan led his team to the finals six times and came out victorious all six of those times. He was also named finals MVP all six times. Jordan has another amazing record when he scored 63 points against the Boston Celtics in 1986. Jordan’s success in the finals and post-season was an amazing feat that’ll probably never come close to being accomplished ever again (Zachmo Marsupalami.) When focusing on the post season performances between the two
