My personal highlight as an athlete was when I made it all the way to sectionals for the javelin. As a drum major or anything else that I do, my absolute favorite highlight is watching all the band members grow as musicians and as people. And nothing can make me prouder or happier
I want to be recruited to play track and field in college because I want to take my game to the next level. I want to see how far my limits can go and see what I'm capable of. Also, I want to surround myself with likeminded individuals and coaches who are going to help me push myself to be a better athlete and a better person.
My sophomore T&F season we had a bunch of new people come up to javelin. I was really excited but not all of these people didn't know how to throw. And since we only had one coach I stepped up and took time out of my own practice and made sure that the new people got the attention and coaching that they needed.
During my junior year, I was a drum major for my school marching band and one of my peers and friends was going through a tough time with a break up from that summer and people were making fun of her. One day she was having a really rough day, so after a softball game, I stopped by her house and brought her some of her favorite popcorn and she just talked things out and I listened and supported her.
I was always told that it was important to have fun when playing. As the game became more competitive it became more intense. But under pressure is where I felt most focused on what I was doing. Although it's very important to help support your teammates; it's just as important to support yourself by, a healthy diet, good work ethic, a healthy mind, and a good attitude. And whenever I messed up sure I was upset but I learned from it and know for the next time.
The summer going into my freshman year my church went on a missionary trip down to Haiti. While we were there we helped paint and clean their local hospital. Where ever we went the kids would follow us. My favorite part from that trip was during the breaks of working I would play with the kids and get to know the kids better even though there was a language barrier I was touched by their compassion. On the last day a kid brought me his breakfast, rice and beans, I didn't eat it because he needed it more than I did, but I was touched by his act of kindness. Ever since then I make sure to take that extra step with others on and off the field.
