As a child growing up I have always had a dream to go to college and be determined to do many things after high school. Even though I was at such a young age I really had a goal to play at a high division one school, the closer I got the more reality hit me. I realized the amount of cost and requirements to get into these really big schools.
High School I learned more about what I could do to get into these schools and play college baseball. I have to have full dedication and determination to get these things done. I stand out from many people due to the hard work and amount of drive I have to get task done correctly and on time. Many people start to procrastinate and believe they deserve things for their participation but the work that is done, determines what is deserved. I started working as soon as I was able to since one of my goals was to buy my own first car and I have worked as bus boy, dishwasher and blocks man for the past years and also picking up side jobs that I could. I was finally able to purchase my car I truly wanted and it was mine, My 2010 Hyundai Genesis was my very own vehicle. It is my first real example of my hard work as I can show it off wherever I go.
Another way my strong and determined traits are displayed is my signed commitment to a division one school for baseball. I’ve had the goal of playing beyond high school since I could hit and throw and had the drive from winning. I have had my parents support me every year trying to get me the exposure I needed to go play baseball after high school. As I gradually grew as a leader and student of the game, my coach was finally able to get me the opportunity to show my skills off in front of a very good school. Once they told me they wanted me, I was finally able to say I have achieved one of my biggest goals that I had set for myself.
The obstacles and achievements I have been though have made me the strong, hardworking and determined student that I am today. I constantly set new goals for myself to achieve to always get better and I believe I will be able to achieve many of my set goals through my studies within college and life and grow as a role model to my family and those people who look up to me.
