I’m confident in my capabilities to improve myself while also bettering the program I’m in. I want to represent my school in the best way possible by not only showing academic excellence, but also by giving my best effort in the sport of distance running.
Not only am I an assigned leader by my coach for the team, but I also lead the Bible Study Club at my school and help push my Math Team teammates to be there best. I make an effort to be as friendly as possible to anybody new in either the teams or the clubs that I lead, whether that’s getting to know them better or helping them to improve their form. I’m confident in my leadership to provide order while also making what we do more fun and exciting.
For me, school comes first. If my grades aren’t in line or a test is coming up, I make sure to set aside time for extra studying. However, when I’m at practice I am present in the moment to do my best in any given workout. As a student athlete the most important thing is to have a consistent routine- getting to bed on time, eating breakfast and doing homework for example.
Every Sunday morning, I volunteer to help teach kids in Sunday School at my local church. While it’s hard to put in effort on a Sunday morning when I want to sleep in, I know the importance of giving kids something to look forward to by being enthusiastic and sacrificing time to learn the motions of a new song the kids get to learn, while also giving parents a break to hear the weekly message. Likewise, I recently got a job at Mathnasium as a math tutor for students to help kids who are either struggling or need an extra push to perform well in the subject of mathematics. It’s important to serve because it takes the focus off of yourself to put in to other people which is exactly the attribute a good teammate needs if he or she will be wanting to make the team better around them.
