Leadership can be described differently based off of others knowledge. However there is one thing that's for sure about the word leadership and that word is you. As an junior in high school I have learned so much over the course of the year all thanks to the involvement of being in National Honor Society. As an individual, I have demonstrated leadership on and off the field by taking the responsibility and opportunity to not be like other "high school kids" by going to parties and getting into trouble. I did this my realizing that I have priorities. Realizing that school and athletics is a priority and as well as a privilege. This is where most of the struggles came in, I lost a few friends throughout the way but it has led me to become a future Advanced Honors graduate of the graduating class of 2015 as well as given me the opportunity to not just reach my dreams, but conquer them. Leadership will always start and end with you.
As a student-athlete there can be very difficult circumstances that I experience with healthy athletic performance. However over the course of time I have realized that what you do or what you eat truly affects you as an individual on and off the field. In taking that into note, I make sure nights before games that I get some pasta for dinner and wake up the next morning with a banana. I also learned that it's best to drink at least 1-2 gallons a day so I can stay hydrated. Overall simple steps are always given and whether you learn the easy way or hard way of these as a student-athlete, you still learn them and therefore live to fix them for much greater and healthier athletic performance for your future endeavors.
A player may possess many things in life other than the love of the game. From the start of my seventh grade year in middle school and my Junior year in High school I was given the opportunity to join National Honor Society. This is a very big accomplishment for me as a student-athlete because not only do I get to do what I love which is playing on the fields, but I am also able to help and give back to others just out of generosity and the want to help my fellow citizens. These are two of my biggest accomplishments that I would call as my prize possessions because they both help me grow as a young individual. It teaches me to be grateful and yet have the ability to do whatever I want in my life because no matter the struggles I may face, the results from it will always be worth it.
