I enjoy being outdoors because I love nature. Sometimes on the weekends I go either bike riding, mountain or road, or hiking with my mom. Being outside is a breath of fresh air. Hiking gives me the chance to explore the windy, dirt trails and clear my mind. I usually go to the top of Victory Trail to ride my mountain bike or hike. Victory Trail is beautiful with all the rolling hills and amazing sights you can see. I sometimes venture off the trail just too see what is there. Sometimes I come across rattle snakes, tarantulas, and lizards. All in all, being outdoors is how I spend most of my free time.
My family consists of me, my twin brother, and my two moms. My family is different than most others because not everyone has two moms. My parents and brother are very supportive in whatever I do even if I am not the best at it. I appreciate everything that my moms have done for me and I hope to return the favor when I get older. I am very lucky to have two very caring and loving parents and brother. I love my family very much.
Mammoth Mountain is one of my favorite places to go on vacation. I enjoy going to Mammoth in the summer and winter. I love going to Mammoth in the winter because I enjoy snowboarding and I love the snow. Not only is Mammoth beautiful in the summer, it is also beautiful in the winter. I hike many trails at very different altitudes and I kayak at June lake that is below a waterfall. When I went this summer for my brother's cross country camp, the water was freezing because of the snow runoff. The amount of snow that fell this year was historical. I'm looking forward to going back next year. To me everyday in Mammoth is like a new adventure.
One of my greatest achievements is making it to the Olympic Development Program. In order to make it to there, I would of had to be scouted by one of the coaches. I was scouted at National Cup. The coaches had the difficult decision to choose 180 girls out of 12,000. Only the best in their opinion would get chosen. I was ecstatic when I figured out I was invited to go to a try out with all the other girls. After trying out they had to cut a whole bunch of players until they only had 20. I was so excited that I was named part of the top twenty. All my hard work had payed off and I couldn't be happier. This is a moment that will live with me forever.
Though I have been playing soccer for only three years, I have developed a genuine love for the game. I play soccer 5-6 times a week with my team and older girls. Club soccer is very competitive and that's what drives me to keep getting better. I know soccer is my passion because I love playing it and it never gets old. All in all, soccer is my favorite sport and I enjoy watching and playing it.
