I guess the best way to describe a person such as myself is the little guy thats full of surprises. Standing at 52, weighing in at only 100 pounds, you wouldnt expect much of me. However I have done many things in my life that I am so proud of. I started Martial arts around the age of 4 and today I hold a black belt that I cherish so much. The discipline, integrity, and hard work that I had to put in have shaped who I was and who I am to become.

Suffice it to say, I achieved a 4.0 at the end of my freshman year. Another thing that I am proud of is my leadership. Thats shown in the 4 different clubs that I have been Secretary, Vice-President, and President of. Also, is the captain spot that I have in wrestling which I have been Varsity of for 3 years. Just like Martial Arts, it has pushed me to my limit and allowed me to exceed them. For that, I am happy. It has shaped my personality to take responsibility and do the things that must be done.

Now I like to take this opportunity to take about my preparation for college. In all honesty, I never thought of my educational opportunities as a way to prepare for college. All the
