People who have been an inspiration to me include: My Mom & Mr. Cotrell

Because: The amount of sacrifice and hard work I’ve seen my mom do to keep me where I’ve wanted to be and keep a roof over my head are things I’ll never be able to thank her for. She’s the most kind, determined, and caring person I know. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her, she is my rock.

Cotrell has been my soccer coach for the last four years. He’s taught me to be confident in who I am and to put everything I have into what I’m doing. I couldn’t have asked for a better coach and teacher.

Lately, I have been reading: Heart of Darkness for english

My advice to parents: Understand that high school is difficult for everyone, we all handle it a different way. Realize that the best thing you can do with your children is listen to them, support them, and encourage them to do their best. We’re all trying to find our place in this world, those who support us are the ones who make the biggest impact.

My biggest regret: Not getting involved in things out of my comfort zone throughout high school

Next year I will be: Attending Otterbein University, with a major in Zoo & Conservation science
