Sport’s are an aspect of life that affect societies across the globe. Athletics affect everyone's life, whether that be playing the sport, watching games, or hearing about a sporting event. There is a big difference between playing an individual sport and players relying on their own athletic abilities versus a team sport when members of the team rely on their teammates to complete each individual's specific responsibility to reach the team's goal. Team sports bring people together in countless ways, and they teach many life skills for the athletes that participate in them. Some of these skills include communication, teamwork, discipline, work ethic, dedication, leadership, and numerous more that will help them in their personal and work
My collegiate years, I juggled academics and athletics. As a student-athlete, I learned firsthand how to be a leader and a team player. My motivation as a teammate has been to bring the best characteristics out of my peers by being the best version of myself. I used my academic drive and love for learning to motivate my peers in times that are not optimal, for instance, on away game bus trips. I would initiate study groups with teammates. On multiple
In all my life, I’ve never had a commitment that required so much of me as track and field, both physically and mentally. Towards the end of my high school career, track and field for me meant having to push through a difficult physical condition known as tarsal coalition, a condition that causes inflammation in my feet. With help from my coaches, I had to learn to endure past physical limitation and strengthen my faith in my abilities. By doing so, I became more confident in myself and I was able to help lead other team members to do the same. Not only did track and field teach me to lead, but it also taught me how to be a part of a team. I learned the value of teamwork through building relay race teams. In all relay races, I was either the
Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University is an excellent place to create a better future for myself and for my community. At this University I can make others around me strive to be the best they can be by bring my unique passion and communication skills to campus. When I was a child I was very shy and quiet and now I have realized how much I have grown. After being in high school working on group assignments and joining extracurricular activities, I have built a great relationship with the students in my high school. In particular, the French Club that I joined during high school really helped me comfortably connect with my peers. If I am given the opportunity to attend Florida A&M University, I will help the campus community
Clark Atlanta University is the institution that will allocate the resources I need to be successful as a leader in the future. Over the years, family members, friends, mentors, teachers, and advisors have implemented tools into my educational career to get me to this point in my life.

Through the Dual Degree Engineering Program, I will be able to study Architectural Engineering. Consistent studies and research will give me the insight I need to impact and change the social environments around me. The trust I put in the university’s faculty and procedures will allow me to flourish into an excellent leader and role model that will make a positive influence on the environment of the campus and off campus.
This sport affects my leadership attitude more than anything else. Cross country is a difficult sport, and everyone needs to have mental toughness. By encouraging my teammates, I indirectly impact the results of their race. It is easier to run well with a positive mindset rather than complaining. For example, before the biggest competitions of the year, the conference and the districts race, I wrote notes to my teammates. My goal was to motivate each runner to perform her best.
I would be an excellent fit for Appalachian State University and am eager to both embark on this new path of life and better myself as a person.

Appalachian State University is an outstanding school and I would love to be a part of
I am a good student, capable of reaching my objective at UF. Additionally, I believe that I possess traits necessary to help me prevail and complete the goal of becoming an Electrical Engineer. One of my best qualities, I feel, is the determination to complete the task; so far, whenever I have been tested, I have risen to the occasion. Last year I took a class that challenged me out of my comfort zone, yet it was the most rewarding. I know that UF will offer me the same endeavor to succeed in my aspirations. I am looking forward to joining the UF community and I hope to contribute to the Gator
At UCI, I plan to expand my horizons through the variety of clubs and classes there is to offer. Throughout high school, I constantly strived to make a difference in my community and I hope to continue this in college. With plenty of connections and resources, I want to participate in bigger and better service projects. My motivations come from the social interactions I have had in high school. Clubs have allowed me to see the various perspectives of people and how they try to change the circumstances of their community. I have met many compassionate and loving individuals and I hope to find more at UCI. They have inspired me to do more than what I have already done.
My goal while attending this University is to be an example for other minorities who come from harsh upbringings such as myself and show them that with perseverance and hard work you can overcome any challenges you are faced with and accomplish the goal(s) you have in sight. What I bring to the table is firsthand experience and I feel
During my time in High School I ran on the cross country team for 3 seasons. The coach, Mark Snead is known for his sense of humor, teaching skills, and leadership abilities. This coach and teacher was committed to bringing out the best in his students. In the class, he didn’t waste time or try to overload you with pointless busy work. Instead he would teach what was necessary and appropriate to understand the subject and excel in the class. At practice, he would never yell at runners if he knew they weren't trying their best, instead he would gather up the team and explain to everyone why we run. He would proclaim something along the lines of, "Each day we come out here and practice, we work to improve ourselves, you don't want to end up regretting
Environmental Impact of Personal Lifestyle: Behavior # 2 For many years I have contributed to biodegradables that end up in landfill sites. I have been continuously purchasing water bottles my whole life. Plastic is used almost everywhere, I have been using plastic bags when I go grocery shopping and I have never tried to get reusable bags.
An ecological footprint is your overall impact on the environment based on the resources that you use. The resources that you use will give an estimate to determine the area that is needed to support your lifestyle. Typically a person in a modern society that is industrialized can have a bigger ecological footprint than a person in a society that is not as developed and where certain resources have not reached. After taking the quiz my overall footprint was 4.6 planet earths. It surprised me very much because when I first went on the website I took the basic quiz first just to get an idea of what the point of the test was, and I got a total of 5 planet earths. Once I was done I thought for sure that I would get a lot less if I had to put in details, so I answered everything honestly and it only decreased by .4 planets. I was also surprised because for a few questions my answers were “infrequently”, or “occasionally” which I thought would help.
The following Power Point presentation is on environmental awareness, specifically my ecological footprint. As a North Carolina (NC) native with a wife and five children, my family's ecological footprint would be 28.8 acres. This figure represents the amount of natural resources required to sustained just my household. This presentation will discuss the significance of such a large footprint on the ecosystem, the ecology and biome of the state of NC, the impact humans have as a whole on the ecosystem, factors of biodiversity and how they effect the ecology, and measures that NC is taking to support biodiversity. Lastly, I will discuss factors within the biome that work together in an ecosystem and conclude with changes that need to be made
