    I played sports in elementary, although I wasn't very good at it. When I entered middle school and high school i becam more focused and worked harder, and it later payed off. I played track sports.

    My elementary school didn't offer sports so I participated in academic programs but my Jr. high and high school did and participating in those sports made me feel more proud of my school.

    I played softball from the age of 5 (t-ball) until I was 19. I also played basketball for two years in Junior High, and ran track in High School.
