Through my school, I play varsity girls basketball, cross country, and the past three years have been a part of the track team. This year, my varsity basketball team won a sectional title for the 3rd time in a row! I’m proud to say that I was a part of the team all three years and, this year, am a captain! I have been on the varsity cross country team since 8th grade and have won two sectional titles with my team and raced at states. Outside of my school teams, I play in a league called the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) for basketball. This league is nation-wide and highly competitive. I have won a number of tournaments playing in AAU and am grateful to have the opportunity to play the sport I love year-round.
My hobbies, other than sports, mainly includes supporting my friends and my family in all their events, reading books, and going on hikes and runs with my friends. I enjoy watching my friends play in their games or perform in concerts and the same goes for my two brothers. I also love to read. As of late, the books that I have been reading pertain to the area of my future career interest. My interests lie in the STEM field, particularly anything that heavily associated with mathematics.
In the future, I hope to attend either West Point, the Air Force Academy, or the University of Colorado at Boulder. If I attend West Point or the Air Force Academy, I will go into the military for 4-8 years. After completing my military quota I would go back to school for a Ph.D. or masters in physics, mathematics, or aerospace engineering. After completing a Ph.D. in either mathematics, aerospace engineering, or physics, I plan to get a job with either SpaceX or NASA and work on expanding the reach of human knowledge. I also aim to be a part of the Mars colonization and exploration.
I asked my physics teacher to write a recommendation for me. Here is the link: Recommendation
