I am a social butterfly. With many people entering and leaving my life, I have been able to single out the good, and get rid of the bad. All my friends have influenced me in one way or another and made me who I am today. So when I began high school, I found it important to find the true friends who would motivated me and encourage me to do my very best in all that I do. As each of us go our different ways, I've had to focus on what I wanted and what was best for me, find the path that I want and find others who would join me on the path to success. During my freshman year I decided to try something new, join the softball team at school. As tryouts were held, and I made new friends, I was enjoying my first softball experience. I made the team and started practicing right away. What brought my team together was the drive to win the league championship. Everyone worked hard and focused their energy on playing hard and winning. Through my team experience, I have learned the value of teamwork. I have learned that as an individual you sometimes have to sacrifice for the good of the team. Learned discipline from going to practice everyday and being there for my team to support them even when I didn't feel like going. .I can relate this to my social life because this is what I looked for in my friends, a drive we all had to focus our energy into succeeding in all that we do. My friends have shape my dreams and aspirations by guiding me to seek a high level of education and staying on the right path.
