I am a very self - motivated person. When I was very young, my mother told me that to achieve the goals I set for myself, I would need to put in 100% effort. This work ethic she helped cultivate is the character trait that I am most proud of. Everyday I try and push myself to be the best person I can be because I know if I don’t have the inner drive to go after my goals, then I won’t be able to reach them. I know that one of my goals, to be a college athlete, will never come to fruition if I depend on others to motivate me. I’ve seen friends who also had dreams of success in certain areas who never accomplished their goals because they weren’t self - motivated. I’m not that type of person. I work hard to achieve what I want in life because I know that if I don’t, I will never feel good about who I am. The comfortable home, a loving wife, kids, a fulfilling career, and even the little kitten- all end goals I’m working towards in my life. I am focused on achieving these goals and will do everything in my power to get to that point in life where I can support my family and hopefully help others achieve their dreams of success.
I guess the one thing that I would want my advisor to know about me if I’m fortunate enough to attend Deerfield is that I can guarantee I will always use every opportunity I receive to the fullest, and I will be the best student I can be at Deerfield.
