"My dreams are big and I fail a lot but I don’t give up because you never know when the hard work is going to pay off. I know that if I keep doing my best and learning from my mistakes I will succeed and live my dreams.
My big dreams were: I wanted to get my 200m individual medley time under 4:30 and now my all time best is 3:56.30. I wanted to go to college and was accepted into George Mason University in their Mason Life Program AND I graduate in May 2020!
My long term goal: I want to open a sports camp for kids with disabilities. My major is Sports Management and Recreation with a minor in communications. I currently work with kids in a recreation and school environment. I also just got a part time job at the fitness center on campus. I also just got a part time job at the fitness center on campus so I know I have to keep working hard to gain the experience I need to learn how to manage a business and teach kids how to play sports at the same time! I can do it!
Never give up on your dreams. You never know when the hard work will pay off." - Alex
