Tell us a little about yourself
I am currently a 7th grader at Stow-Munroe Falls Middle School. I love sports and working out. I play football and am the running back, and also am the cornerback on defense. I was voted captain by my peers 4 years in a row. During the fall and winter, I play basketball and am the point guard. I also love creating workouts in my basement and running outside. I was also inspired to workout by American Ninja Warrior, and have a lot of obstacles in my basement. I love collecting basketball and football cards. Also, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends. I love swimming and summer vacations to the beach with my family.
“I always want to be the hardest worker, every practice, every day. I love feeling strong and healthy."
Tell us what motivates you the most.
I always want to be the hardest worker, every practice, every day. I love feeling strong and healthy. Working out keeps me healthy all the time. I feel like I am stronger and have more energy than my non-CF peers. This definitely keeps me motivated, because most would never guess that I have a lung disease. I also love competition and hate to lose. The stronger I am, the better my team will do.
Why do you exercise?
I really love the way exercise makes me feel. I also love the results of exercise. I am stronger and faster for the sports I want to compete in.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
