Running has been my best guide through life but it took a while to reveal itself. I started in a very small team where I was my own competition, without a partner to train with because I was too fast. What kept me going was my family, they knew how much potential I had. No matter how many times they told me I was good at it, I wasn't pursuing it for myself. Then came highschool, I entered the track team and finally found myself loving the sport a little more only because there was one girl faster than me. Eventually that girl graduated and the reality of training alone again brought me to my downfall. It slowly began to take control of my mind, keeping me away from what was ahead of me. The phrase “I can’t do it” was my favorite thing to say. Every time it came out of my mouth it became more attached to me. Two years later is when I finally accepted that I had everything I needed to challenge myself and stopped looking for things around me. That decision is what pushed me to place second in the state of Florida. Crossing the finish line reminiscing on the challenges and lessons learned. I wasn’t just crossing the finish line, I was leaving those mental barriers that had kept me from enjoying the journey as much as the destination.

I am currently a junior in high school looking for ways to make college less expensive on my parents. I play golf and I have played golf for many years, I have put the work and the effort into it to possibly earn an athletic scholarship; but, if I do not earn one then college might not be an option for me. This scholarship would help me because every dollar helps and I believe I have pushed hard enough and done enough to earn and deserve this. I am academically well rounded, I have maintained all As since middle school, I have received multiple awards for my gpa, and I have been in many honor societies. On the golf course as well I have earned many awards for things other than my scores- I have won the "WTJCT Sportsmanship Award", the "TJGT Coaches Integrity Award", and I have been applauded for always having integrity and doing the right things on the course even when no one is around to do or say anything.

Although, I’m already a student at Webster University, it will be extremely difficult to earn and save money for tuition payments while, at the same time, constantly training and improving my sports career. Receiving a scholarship or grant would allow me to focus and maintain high marks in my studies, while also allowing me the time I need to achieve my goal of becoming an Olympic wrestling champion. I ask that you please consider me for your scholarship program so that I may achieve full ability in my future sports and business careers.
