Bold Points






Swimming, football, and music are my passions. I have been playing the violin for 8 years and have always been an active member of my high school's orchestra. In addition, I played football for 2 years and love watching the NFL, UFL, and college football when given the opportunity. Swimming is therapy for me when I am stressed due to the pressure of maintaining a high GPA and academic honors. I have consistently been part of the top percentage of my class. I have been swimming for the NWAL, a summer league, for 9 years: 6 years with the Cutten Green Currents; 3 years with the Oak Creek Village Cudas.

      Throughout my life, I have been fortunate to receive the gifts of ambition and need from various individuals. Friends, family, and even strangers have shown me the importance of striving for my goals and fulfilling my needs, and their support has had a significant impact on my personal and professional development. As I reflect on these experiences, I am reminded of the importance of paying it forward and offering the same level of ambition and fulfillment to others in need. One of the most profound ways in which others have given to me is by instilling ambition and the drive to achieve my goals. My friends and family have been my source of inspiration, encouraging me to pursue my dreams and ambitions. Their unwavering belief in my potential has fueled my determination and been a driving force in my journey toward success. I am deeply grateful for their support, and I am committed to being a source of ambition and motivation for them in return. Whether it's providing guidance, sharing opportunities, or simply being a source of encouragement, I aim to reciprocate the same level of ambition and drive that they have shown me. Additionally, I have encountered instances where strangers have shown incredible kindness and empathy, providing the support I needed to fulfill my needs. Whether it was a helping hand from a passerby or a supportive conversation with someone I had just met, these moments have left a lasting impression on me. As I plan to pay it forward, I am committed to volunteering and helping others fulfill their needs in my community. Whether it's through acts of kindness, volunteering at local organizations, or simply being a source of support for those in need, I aspire to extend the same level of compassion that was once offered to me by strangers. In times of personal and professional growth, I have been fortunate to receive guidance and mentorship from teachers, colleagues, and mentors. Their wisdom and support have played a pivotal role in shaping my journey, and I am eager to pay it forward by mentoring and teaching others. By sharing my skills, knowledge, and experiences, I hope to empower and support those who can benefit from guidance and mentorship. Whether it's through mentorship programs or offering support to aspiring individuals, I am committed to nurturing the growth and development of others, just as my mentors have done for me. In conclusion, the gift of ambition and need that I have received from others has been invaluable, and it has inspired me to pay it forward in various ways. Whether it's through being a source of ambition and motivation for friends and family, volunteering in my community, or mentoring and supporting others, I am dedicated to extending the same level of ambition and fulfillment that has been bestowed upon me. As I continue on my journey, I am committed to being a source of support and inspiration for those in need, and I hope to make a positive impact in the lives of others, just as others have done for me.
