Personal Statement

I am a very punctual, organized person.  I am a planner and goal oriented.  My plans for next year have changed due to a decision that I needed to make.  I have had success in both hockey and golf on a national level of competition.   I was seriously committed to not going to college in ’08/’09 so that I could play hockey and then go to a college that I wanted to go to in ’09 and both study and play hockey.  After thinking about this career path, I realized that this was not the realist approach and I now I am more comfortable with the idea of going to college for business.  I love to compete and hope to play golf on a college golf team.  


I am a confidence guy.  I am not the greatest test taker but my work ethic is strong.  I think that the only way I have succeeded is that I try to give 100% in everything that I do.  Over my first three years at my college prep high school, I feel that I have learned to determine the difference between the “forest and the trees.”  As a result I have accomplished a great deal academically. 


Extracurricular activities are incredibly important for me since I think my participation has allowed me to mature as a person.   I have completed a fair amount of community service hours at the Food Pantry, Food Shuttle and the free health clinic called Light House.  These experiences have been eye opening and humbling.  I now appreciate what I have much more than ever before. Balancing my weekly commitment to outreach with my hockey and golf schedule has been challenging.  In the fall of both ’06 and ’07 I was in cities such as Dallas, Minnesota, Indianapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Boston and Cleveland.  In a two month period of time I was out of town 7 out of 8 weekends.  Layered on top of all this was my commitment to a business that I set up with my brother.  Our company is a party facilitating company.  We bring in tents, tables, chairs, music, plants, beverages, and more to make peoples’ parties a success.  Dealing with people who are stressed out because they are trying to have the nicest parties has been a huge education. Dealing with employees to fulfill the commitment that we have has been very challenging.  All this activity has made me very adept at time management.  My time management skills have certainly been well honed over the past three years.  I am far from a one dimensional student.
