Senior Spotlight | Winter Sports
My favorite memory on the court (bench) is hyping up my team and just having a great time overall with my teammates. My plans for my academic future are to attend college and major in psychology. My parents have been the most influential people in my life; they push me to do my best in everything I do.
My favorite memory is from my freshman year when we had a game against North Shore. I hit the game-tying 3-pointer and came back with a defensive stop.
In the future, I would like to attend college and major in business, with a minor in either US History or children's education, aspiring to become a teacher one day. I would like to participate in club sports and|or track and field at the collegiate level.
The most influential person in my life has been my mother. I chose her because she is a hardworking woman in a tough American society, having come from another country. She has always encouraged me to be a leader and not a follower, a principle I will always stand by that in the future.
One of the highlights for me this year was serving as a captain for the varsity cheer team. Performing our routine in front of everyone truly showcased the hard work and dedication we put into the season, and hearing the cheers from the crowd always give me such a feeling of accomplishment. I will attend Long Island University and major in nursing, specializing in pediatrics. I plan to try out for the university's cheer team. My parents have been the most significant influence in my life, they are always there for me and have always been my number one supporters.
One of my favorite memories is winning our home competition—it was my favorite moment on the mat. I plan to become an elementary school teacher. The most influential person in my life is my mother, due to her strength and determination.
My athletic highlights include two years on Varsity Kickline and 14 years in pre-professional dance. One of ny favorite memories is competing with my team and seeing all of our hard work pay off. I want to be a veterinarian, so I want to study animal science or biology. I want to continue playing sports, whether that be dance, kickline, or tennis! My mom has been the most influential person in my life because she had to adapt to a new life in America at a young age and had to work extra hard to achieve everything she has today. When she was young, she had to work and take care of her family so she wasn't allowed to play sports, which makes me even more grateful for all of the sports I am able to take part of today.
My athletic highlights in rifle include making the varsity team as a freshman, achieving All Conference my sophomore year, earning All-County recognition my junior year, earning 4th place in Nassau County during the same year and serving as captain my senior year. My favorite memory was in my junior year when I made All County with one of my closest friends and we were next to each other on the wall. I will be attending SUNY New Paltz in the fall where I will major in Early Childhood Education. The most influential people in my life have been my family. They have pushed me to be the best I can be and have been there to celebrate my successes.
An athletic highlight of mine is placing in the top ten in the 2-mile race at county championships last year, and I hope to make All-County this year. A favorite memory is the first race of this season. I kept telling myself that I had put in the work, and all I had to do now was let it show. I did just that—I won the heat and set a personal record by a significant margin. My academic plan is to study economics in college, and my athletic plan is to continue running, either for a school team or a club team. The most influential person in my life is my dad. He goes over race strategy with me, and we always discuss what worked and what didn't.
A favorite memory that stands out for me is the support of my friends, who cheered me on during a significant moment. My academic plan is to become become a physical trainer, while my athletic goal is to gain a refined physical aesthetic. The most influential person in my life is my dad because he taught me the most about the sport.
Achieving All Conference is one of the most memorable highlights for me after high school. It gave me such a significant confidence boost in all aspects of my life. My academic plan is to study in the computer science field and pursue opportunities there—though I'm not sure yet. My mom has supported, encouraged, and taught me a great deal over the years. I wouldn't be who I am today without her, and I certainly wouldn't be in the position I am in now.
