I ask my self am I doing enough, or is there someone out there out working me? This leads me to not get any sleep because I’m too busy trying to perfect my craft.
 
Give me an example of when you failed at something. How did you react and how did you overcome failure?

An example would be the time I went out for volleyball in middle school. Where I’m from we only play football and basketball, so volleyball was foreign to me. At first, I wasn’t good at it at all. I could barely bump the ball to a teammate. I overcame this obstacle with the help of volleyball coach Mrs. Sanderford, who taught me the fundamentals of the game. Soon I would become one of the most reliable players on the team.

My most embarrassing moment is when I tried to get this girl number that I liked in my college’s cafeteria, but it didn’t work out because I had a big greasy hamburger on my plate and she was a vegetarian.

The most memorable play is when I went head up with a safety my freshman year, ran him over, and kept going.

My mother is the biggest influence in my life, because she has been working two jobs since I was born, and she is the most selfless person I know. I want to be successful so she never has to work again.
