As the captain of the cross country team and track, I consider myself a motivator both on the track and outside. The younger athletes occasionally find themselves at a point where they can't do the work out, or they want to give. I always remind them that this pain will lead to success, that you need to mold this suffering into greatness, because I too find myself in the same situation. But like Rocky always said, "It's not about hard you get hit, it's about how hard you get it and get up." When it comes to outside the track, I simply a helper to my peers. Sometimes they need help because of homework, or they need someone to comfort or talk to and I put myself available to them. Sometimes my friends need a little motivation to remind them they're worth something and have potential.
In terms of services, I assist in my Catholic church, St. Mary of Celle, as an Ambassador of Christ engaging in a number of projects to promote my church to its full potential. Additionally, I am part of PADS, essentially a homeless shelter provided by my church. To me, as a follower of Christ, I feel the need to help those who are unfortunate and at the end of the day, I cannot help but feel satisfied knowing I made someone's day. Even in school, I am that "go-to" guy for assistance in homework or social life problems. In school, I am part of a freshmen mentor program called FMP where I become a resource for freshmen in homework assistance, advice, and someone to go to when they have an issue. I am also in NHS which of course is a leadership role that involves constant community service to which I am openly active. Ultimately, I just love helping people despite the my circumstances.
