Everyone is different in their own way. These differences are what makes us who we are. We are defined by the things we do, say, believe in, and we all have many characteristics that make us unique.
What makes me different than other people is, I like to do what makes me happy without worrying about what other people are going to think about it. Some of the things that I most enjoy doing are sports, such as lacrosse and hockey. I also have lots of determination to reach specific goals when it comes to sports. Many people settle for less when they could be achieving much greater things. For me, I don’t quit until I feel completely satisfied with what I have accomplished. In the future, I plan on achieving my goal of playing on a college lacrosse team. This has been my dream since I was 7 and I know with hard work and dedication I can make this dream come true.
Most people when they first see me will recognize me as a very quiet person. Once people get to know me better they will quickly realize I am a very talkative and cheerful person, except if I’m having a bad day. Sometimes I find that I get mad very easy if I am not having a good day. This is one of the many things I am continuously working to improve about myself every day. Another thing I am always trying to improve is my sleep schedule. Often I realize that I either don’t get enough sleep or sleep too much. By having a better sleep schedule I know I would be an overall happier and healthier person.
Although there are many things I am working to make better about myself, there are many things I wouldn’t change about myself. Over the past few years playing lacrosse I couldn’t be happier with what I have accomplished. The past year I was asked to go to provincials with Cold Lake Heat lacrosse team. Since then I have gotten another opportunity to play for a better team in Sherwood Park.
Overall I think the most important thing to know about me is that I am a very caring, understanding and accepting person. Everyone has things they can improve about themselves, and I can’t say I’m an exception. These strengths and flaws are what make us who we are.
