I aspire to be a pediatrician and have accepted admission to Wisconsin Lutheran College in Milwaukee as a biology/pre-medicine major. I plan to attend medical school upon completion of my undergraduate degree. I desire to contribute to our society by helping those less fortunate and to be able to work with children promoting healthy lifestyles.
Favorite sports memory:
What I will take with me from high school sports is the team bonding that my basketball team and I created on the bus rides to and from away games. Every time I hear a song from the movie “Pitch Perfect”, I will remember the great times that were had as we sang our lungs out.
Advice to an athlete:
Participating in athletic activities has been a very rewarding experience for myself as it has taught me that I need to practice patience, understanding and compassion for others. Our teams have not always been as successful as I would have hoped, but I have gained lifelong friendships with people that I may never have been able to spend time with otherwise. My advice to high school athletes is to understand that it is sometimes more important to be a leader than a winner and that one person can make a difference.
There is a sign in our hallway that reads, “Character is who you are when no one is watching.” I have read this sign every day in school since I was a freshman, and every day I have taken it to heart. I strive to be the best student, friend, teammate and person that I can be. I want my character to show that I have worked hard and applied myself to each and every task set before me. I believe that anything can be achieved through hard work, dedication and perseverence.
