Enjoy working in and with teams. I have been participating in organized team sports since the age of 5, and still enjoy team sports like softball, which I have played since the age of 7 and hockey, which I have played since I was 13 years of age. I have played organized sports since the age of 5 and participate 2-4 times a week.
I can fix minor things on a computer and can set up new devises well. I more enjoy tinkering with audio equipment and music. My father at one point was a DJ and also enjoy it Djing and MCing with the Minesing public school dances.

I also help others on my team with how they play a try to make the team the best it can be and my team mates the best they can be.

While in grade 8 I played on Minesing Central Public School rugby team. The team placed third in the county.
In elementary school my school, Minesing Central 3-pitch softball team won the county tournament while I was in grade 8. On this team I was one of the more experienced team members and tried to help other team members improve their softball skills.
Unfortuntly due to a shortage in coaches this year for softball my coaches were simply parents who didn't have much of a clue what it was they were doing because of this I had to step up and take the role of teaching all of the new players(there were alot of new players) how to play softball and how to build their skills. I very much enjoyed taking this role and would love to coach softball in the future.

I love to watch T.V. I love to be able to watch actors become other characters and I love the drama and the comedy and being brought into another world with excitment and fun.
I like mvoies because like in T.V. you feel experiences that in real life you would probably never feel. Also despite what most people say they are incredibly knowledgeable and a learning experience.
