The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams. At first I was really nervous I didn 't want to mess up but we started to play and a started to do what I did best which is play my game after we played a was pretty convenient in my performance but we still had the whole
The road to glory started in Pierre, South Dakota. Where Berent, Cael, Trevor, Xavier, and I drove up to play for the state cup. The rest of the team was with their parents but we decided to carpool to save money. We were all joking around until we figured out that we were going to play the older tempo team, Tempo Blaze. At first, we thought that this would be a sweep, that we would win the whole tournament without worrying, but know we have to play the team that has never lost this year and we have never beaten for as
At the time, I did not know, that Mock Trial was going to change my high school career. During my first year as a trial attorney, I not only improved immensely in my public speaking and communication skills but also made new friends. After a successful year and great scores at two regional competitions, I was truly proud of our team's achievement. However, many members just seemed to be completely disinterested. That is when I decided to step up and ran for the Mock Trial President position with one main goal— to unite the team.
When I ecstatically approached him the next day and questioned him about the test, he said that I was ready for a class of a higher level and that mine was one of the best essays overall. The innate drive pushing me in track translated to my success not just in athletics, but academics. If I can overcome doubts with my schoolwork to achieve what I need, nothing can stop me from doing the same in every facet of my
This is how sports hough high school have influenced me; they have helped me grow and learn humility and purpose. When I was in eighth grade i was the star of my recreational soccer league, so going into highschool I was not only expecting great things, but I was expected by others to do great things. My coaches, my teammates, and my friends all knew me as a great player which put a lot of pressure on me walking into high school tryouts. I did not know anyone there but I quickly saw that the level of skill I was competing with was something that I had never experienced before. With that I went from being the best player in the league to not making the team my freshman year.
When I joined the wrestling team in grade nine, I had no idea that it would be one of the best decisions I have ever made throughout high school. It is a sport that I fell in love with from the moment I stepped on the matt for my first practice. Being the smallest and only grade nine to join the team that year was very intimidating. However, after my first practice, I was no longer overwhelmed by the group of 15-20 wrestlers because they became my family. 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.
And a leader does not let themselves down just because my school did not choose me as a nominee I did not give up I proceeded and well I got nominated by my summer job Where I worked in the courthouse. I believe this shows how I can persevere and always tried to overcome the obstacle for me. I remember the night I got home and i open my computer to see my email and I see an email from Posse saying that I was nominated I was so happy I could not stop smiling.I remember the email telling me that I was nominated for the Posse scholarship because Emily my organiser for my summer job saw good leadership skills with me and she wanted me to do my best with the posse and to never give up. The posse interview was one of the many things that students can go to and gain inspiration from it they teach you valuable lessons. Seeing the difference faces, different ethnicities made me happy because It was not just one race, but many and all of them were leaders in many different ways.But when I was there my stomach was rumbling but not because I was hungry, but because I was nervous So I did not pass to the second round, but I was not disappointed because i mae not have passed, but the posse interview made me realise many stuff and it actually gave me even more skills to keep trying to make them
“Is it cancerous?”, I asked as the doctor broke the news to me and my mom “How is that even possible?”, as I also asked in clear shock. But before this, I lived like an ordinary child would; go to school, make friends and have a blast while being eager to learn, people were close to me, but I really hadn’t thought too much of it. I was a more of a cheerful kid, laughing at everything told to me. That’s why people liked me, my laugh would brighten the classroom. I would always say, “I can’t wait” and time did fly as it seems like just yesterday.
It was my senior year and I was on track to be Valedictorian at my high school. The school was located in the small town of Hyrum, Utah. I would like to say that I went to a prestigious school that housed the most intelligent students in the country. However, it couldn’t be more different. The pungent smell of manure would waft down the hallways as students walked to and from class, I was always late to school because I would get trapped behind tractors on the single lane highway, and there were always pickup trucks in the parking lot.
When coming to Arcadia High School I didn’t know what to feel like, would I say frightened, worried, or energized? For this reason I decided that I felt confused. I was a bit stressed at the thought of getting bad grades. I entered school and saw what looked like a beehive of people going where they needed to go. So like many freshmen on their first day I got lost looking for my first class, it was such a big school and many of the halls weren’t even in alphabetical order.
Since I could remember I have always been and continued to be stereotyped, but that 's not the worst, the worst is when you start giving into the stereotypes yourself. Since I can remember my goal in life has always been to be able to travel, explore different cultures and peoples around the world. Freshman year of high school came around and there 's a program that allowed kids to travel around the world or within the United States, I saw my cousin do it and I was really excited to apply. I was eligible and a perfect candidate but once I asked the question to the program representative in private she said, “Ohh no, you can 't apply this is for the kids who are able and who deserve it” soon she realized her mistake and tried to work around
