Watkins Glen Varsity Lacrosse
Although, throughout my high school span i have experienced and done plenty of different sports but lacrosse by far has been my favorite and taught me the most. I started playing lacrosse the very first year that our community was introduced to the sport. I remember from the first practice that I knew this sport was something I would like to pursue and become better at. I eventually joined a travel league that was based out of Corning to expand on my skills of the sport. Even though throughout my high school career we never have posted a winning record, I learned the most because of it. Every single year since we have started our team and me have gotten better and better. The winning and losing was not what we cared about it was more about building as a team and become better every day. Without this experience I wouldn’t know how great it is to fail, because failure only allows us to become better and I thank the sport of lacrosse for that.
My hobbies other then the obvious sports and school are mainly focused around being outside and seeing new things. I have been fortunate enough to be able to say I have traveled many places and experienced a vast variety of culture. From traveling to Puerto Rico to many different states within the United States I have learned to love to take in the moment and to really experience the world around us. Being able to experience different cultures allowed me to see life from different viewpoints and to create priorities for myself and to give back. Without traveling and visiting many places my though and experiences would be narrowed and my knowledge of the world and the culture that surrounds us would be less.
For the longest time I’ve always loved to push myself and to chase adrenaline filled activity’s. I’ve also had a love for ones country and to put those two characteristics together allowed me to join the navy. Joining the navy allows me to pursue the satisfaction of giving back and to create a stronger self, emotionally and physically. I plan on staying in the navy for as long as I possibly can and to gain an education through them. After the navy I plan on becoming a state trooper and to hopefully travel as much as I can. My future plans may be limited because I never know where life may take me but for now this is my plan.
