At first it didn’t seem like much to me, it was just something to take up some spare time. But the more and more time I spent doing this, it really started to make me wonder if this is something that I could potentially do in the future. At the start of my lacrosse season my assistant coach asked if I would like to be the assistant coach of his 8 year old son’s lacrosse team. I thought it would be fun so I told him I would be glad to help out this team of about 30 kids. During the first practice I didn’t do much, I was observing just how to go about teaching little kids to learn the basics of lacrosse and how to eventually work their way up to playing in a game. The next practice my coach let me take half the team aside and teach them some of the basics, which surprisingly wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be After giving them instructions, the kids responded pretty well and for the most part, stayed attentive and reacted the way I wanted them to. My coach was very impressed that the kids responded so quickly to me, and more importantly that I was able to gain and keep their attention. Looking back on it, it came very easy to me, but maybe that’s because I’m always around kids. I am one of the oldest in my family, and my family is relatively big. Every year we have a huge family Christmas party and when all of my cousins get together we have about 60 of us. Eleven of them are first cousins, while the rest of them are second cousins. Of this entire group though I am the second oldest, which is why I am so accustomed to having kids around all the time. So when it came to lacrosse it was very easy for me to…

Dear Whomever it concerns,
As a kid I was always into school, and I liked learning new things. My parents always told me if I wanted to be something in life I would have to get an education, and to work hard in life for what I wanted. I took that in consideration, and that became my motivation to strive for my success. Since then I stayed focus in school and did my best to get good grades. I use to be easily distracted by things that made me procrastinate and sidetrack me from…
Education has always been important to me, especially since no one in my family has ever graduated from college. I have faced several obstacles growing up and even though many people, even some of my own family members, thought I couldn't surpass them. My hardships have given me the drive to remain focused on my ultimate goal: achieving higher education.
My mother's struggle and her experience have been an inspiration for me. My mother had a difficult childhood and only received…

College Essay-Prompt 3
All I remember is hearing my mother cry out, “Why? Why? How could this be happening to me?” As I watched the tears stream down her pale white face, I could only wonder what was happening. The vaguely white room of doctor’s office was where we were sitting when all of this panic was going on. It wasn’t my doctor’s appointment though; I found out a few days later that this was the moment my mom was diagnosed with skin…
Many people would probably describe a place where they are perfectly content as an open field or their bed or maybe even the park, but not me, the place where I am most satisfied in my life is the baseball field. I know many people believe that would be crazy because of the yelling, noises and action, but honestly, those aspects are what makes this place so amazing for me. The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of the glove popping when the ball…
