“ This quote is one of my favourites because it makes me think about my athletic journey . At the age of 15 , when I begun athletics seriously , I decided I would do whatever it takes to make it to the highest level in running . My goal is and always has been to make the most of and put 100 % into every opportunity . Striving to compete with the best of my ability , giving my all and having the right attitude . I have a proven track record of successfully combining athletic training with school and university study and can ’ t wait to be surrounded by like-minded teammates , all with a common goal of the most successful studentathletes we can be .”

Introduction Statement :

“ Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals . Grit is having stamina . Grit is sticking with your future , day in , day out , not just for the week , not just for the month , but for years , and working really hard to make that future a reality . Grit is living life like it ’ s a marathon , not a sprint .”

- Angela Lee Duckworth
