Overcoming adversity is what defines character, what was the hardest moment in your life to overcome?
- I have experienced many forms of adversity like anyone has. To struggle with both mental health issues, physical injuries back to back to back, sudden tragedies of loved ones . With all that being said the hardest moment in my life was knowing the struggles and hardships my immediate family were going through while participating in my 5th fall camp. It was the hardest thing I’ve been through because mentally balancing sports and academics while knowing what they were enduring hurt my heart because there was nothing I could do to help except be the best version of myself at school. Whenever my family and I have been through anything before, we did it together. Being away and having zero control over the situations at hand hurt more than anything.
