Represented Bishop O’Dowd as a student-athlete running track and cross country. I ran the three-mile race in Cross Country, and the 400 meter, 200 meter, and 100-meter races for Track meets. We competed in races around the San Francisco Bay Area and won a relay at Merril West High School in California. Being part of the track and cross country team helped me understand the true power of hard work and perseverance/dedication. Being able to complete a race was the best feeling, because it proved that I was capable of pushing myself and overcoming difficulties.
