Varsity Captain for 3 years
I moved to Pennsylvania 3 years ago and before that had never thought of sports. I decided my freshman year to give a few a try. My passion for track came the first day of practice. Since then, my love for the sport and dedication to work hard has only grown. While my school is small and has no track, place to run or truly jump, or a head coach at the moment, I continue to find ways to improve and work hard. I believe with the right coaching I can improve tremendously!
“Be the change that you want to see in the world” stated by Mahatma Gandhi, is not only a quote I say, but a motto I live by. Wherever I go in life, I go with a purpose to create a change for the better. I have had the amazing opportunity to not only be a leader in my school, church, overseas, but as well as locally in my community. Last year I got involved with an organization called “Teens Stand for Charity”, where I now hold the title as president at my school. With the student led “Teen’s Stand for Charity” program, I have been able to be a part in the raising of 40 thousand dollars annually for various charities such as the Ronald McDonald Foundation, Salvation Army, and various Local Homeless Projects. While I have loved every moment of helping serve various organizations, one in particular continues to stand out to me. Less than a year ago, I was asked to go into a local inner city school (Lincoln Elementary) and tutor young kids who would not be able to afford a tutor, or just need someone to be in their corner. During this time, I got the opportunity to play, teach, joke around, and listen to young kids share their hearts. Even though I only got to spent two hour a week with these young kids, I felt the impact of my actions start to show. Over time, kids opened up to me about home life, their struggles, and shared a bond over the importance of education and fun. I would love to say that I have made an impact in their lives, in the hours we spend together each week, but truly they have impacted me. I continue to encourage those in my school to be a part of something bigger than themselves and I choose to lead by example.
