Summary

I currently am a senior at Myers Park high school. I will be attending college next year to study business. I have always shown dedication and passion to sports as i play on the Football and Baseball teams for my school. I have received a Varsity letter in both sports; along with all conference awards in both sports. It was an honor to be selected defensive player of the year in football, along with the leadership role of team captain in both sports. Most of my summers were taken up by many travel baseball tournaments that I would attend all around the country. I had the opportunity to play college baseball for schools like VMI  and some smaller D2 schools. I want to have a career in business and sales, as I have a true talent for these studies. I am also the oldest of Four siblings, and i strive to work hard everyday; so that they look up to me and do everything the right way. Whether it is athletics, the classroom, or handling myself outside of school; I know i need to be a role model for them. Leadership inspires me to help my siblings (and others) to be the very best at whatever they do.

Work History

Coach

Myers Park Trinity Little League

During the summer, i work part time at the little league i used to play for. I coach and instruct baseball summer camps with kids ranging from ages 7-12. I really enjoy giving back to the community, as this little league holds a special place in my heart. I love teaching kids the great game of baseball on the same fields that i fell in love with the game on. 

Salesman

Vector Marketing Company

I work full time for Vector Marketing Company, a company worth 300 million dollars, selling Cutco knives and kitchen cutlery. I call people to set up appointments with them to come show Cutco. I started off with only calling people i knew, but now i call people based off recommendations from past people i have visited. I sold 8000$ worth of Cutco my first 10 days on the job and my career sales is over 15000$ now. This production has made me the top Sales rep in my class of 20 people. I have only been working with Cutco for a month, and i plan on continuing this job throughout the summer. This Job provides lifetime skills as it teaches you so much. I have learned how to handle rejections, communicate with people, and most importantly; how to sell a product. I only get paid by commission, so i wont make any money if I do not sell anything. This job has taught me that nothing in life is promised, and the only place success comes before work is in the dictionary. I enjoy the job very much; and hope to one day own my own business based off the skills i am learning with Cutco.

CHURCH:

-I am a trained acolyte for my church. I have been an acolyte in many church services since my freshman year in High School. I enjoy this very much as it allows me to play a role in my Church community and helps me stay involved 

- During the summer, after my freshman year, i took a 2 week long mission trip with my church to Costa Rica.I was one of about 20 people that went on this trip and it was an experience i will never forget. For 2 weeks, we built the foundation for a church in a poor part of Costa Rica. The people we built this for were so grateful, because they couldn't pay workers to build the church. This experience was eye opening to me, as it allowed myself to realize how blessed I was to live in America.
