1 Who am I…My name is Example Student. I am currently a grade 11 student who is attending Example Secondary School. My family is one of the most important thing in my life and they have always been there for me. I am a very active student who loves playing sports and getting involved with activities. Throughout this presentation you will learn all about me and how I plan to succeed in life.
2 Personal TraitsI believe that I have many positive personal traits, one of them being that I am a very thoughtful person. I love making people smile, and I am always thinking about how I can do things to make a difference in peoples lives. I went to Colima Mexico recently and realized how little it takes to make a difference. Even when I do the little gestures, like helping someone with his or her groceries, or saying “Hi,” to someone that usually doesn’t get that a lot, I love making those people smile and feel good. I am also a very cheerful person. You will rarely see me not smiling and I love making people laugh. I believe you need to make the most out of life. So why would I waste my time being unhappy? I enjoy being happy! Lastly I think that I am a good leader. This shows when I am involved in a project or in sports, even at school functions. I know when to step back and let others lead, but I also know when to step in.
3 My PassionMy passion in life would have to be basketball. I love basketball! It’s amazing how good the sport can make me feel. I have been bouncing basketballs and shooting since I could walk. It has always been one of my favorite things to do. The first time I realized how passionate I was for the sport was when I cried when I missed the game winning shot at provincials. The feeling I had was terrible, but then I realized how important it was, and knew that I would have good and bad games, but I will get through them. Basketball has taught me many lessons that I can apply in life. It has taught me that as long as you try your best, the outcome doesn’t matter. I also learned that setbacks are only negative if you make them negative. I think that it is an amazing sport and I will continue to play basketball as long as my body will allow me to.
4 Hobbies and Interests… Sports have always been a big part in my life and probably one of the things that interests me most. I have played many sports since I was young. Some of the sports I have been involved in are basketball, field hockey, soccer, track and field and cross-country. I really enjoy playing sports because I am a very competitive person and I love staying fit. Another interest I have is singing. I was in our school Jazz choir and I am apart of my church worship team. I think singing is a lot of fun. I sing in the shower, when I am driving and sometimes I just sing to have fun. One of my hobbies would be playing my trumpet. I have been playing for five years now, and I have definitely improved. I love playing my music when I am upset or stressed, because when I play I only think of what I am playing and nothing else. It is a good outlet for emotions and it is great the music our Jazz band can play. These are just a few of my interests, but they are the ones that have the biggest effect on my life.
5 StrengthsI believe that I have many strengths that will help me become successful in life. I work very well in a group environment and as an individual.In a group I can take control and be a good leader, but I also know when to let others do the leading. As an individual I would have to say that I am aperfectionist. I always strive to do my best and people can count on me. I also believe that I am a determined individual. This shows a lot when I amplaying basketball or when I am completing an assignment. Once I get going there is no stopping me! Finally I think that I am a hard worker. In Rec-Leadershipmy teachers know that they can give me numerous jobs and I will complete them on time with a one hundred percent effort.
6 Plan AAfter I graduate I would like to become a High School P.E., Socials, and Rec. Leadership teacher. I think that it would be a very beneficial job for me because I would love to have a family and I love the school environment. By working as a teacher I would be able to make a steady income, while also maintaining a healthy family upbringing. While I am working as a teacher I would also like to be a coach. I will need to go to University and I will get my Bachelor of Arts. I will then get my teaching degree, and if my lifestyle permits it, my masters. I believe I would make a very good teacher. I work very well with others and I think I will understand my students well. I have taken courses such as Rec. Leadership and Socials courses, to contribute to this job.
7 Plan BIf I do not become a teacher I would like to get my degree in business and open my own sporting goods store. I would need to get my degree in business. Then I would take some business management and accounting courses. By opening my own business I would be my own boss. I understand that time that would involve to get the business started, but I think it would be worth it. I would have to have Math 12, English 12, and Calculus to do this, all of which are in my timetable next year. I think I would run a business very well. I have great organization skills and am quite knowledgeable when it comes to sports. It will take time to get it going, but I have the patience to do it.
8 30 hours of work/ volunteer hours I have completed my 30 hours of work/volunteer experience by doing multiple things. I have always volunteered as a Triple Threat Basketball coach at numerous camps. That involves 7 hours a day for five days in the summer. We teach the kids both basic and intermediate skills they can use in a basketball game or to make themselves better. I also went down to Colima Mexico for ten days over spring break with a group from my church to work at an orphanage. This also contributed to my 30 hours. Finally I volunteer for my church’s Sunday school and nursery. For Sunday school we explain bible stories to them and usually there is a craft that is involved. In the nursery it is just looking after babies and toddlers during the church service. I also plan to volunteer at the Peachland cancer run and again at this years basketball camp.
9 Physical Activity?I will have absolutely no problem obtaining my 80 hours of physical activity. Since I had my knee injury I have been going to physio twice a week. That involves cycling, strengthening exercises, and stretches. I will also be on the Sr. Girls basketball team next year. That will involve four practices a week and games. Not to mention the tournaments we will be attending throughout the season. The other team I will be participating on next year will be the school soccer team. That will also involve regular practices and games. I am a very active person and enjoy staying fit. So I believe there will be no challenge for me when it comes to achieving my 80 hours of physical activity.
10 AccomplishmentsOne of the things that I am most proud of accomplishing this year would have to be going to Mexico on my missions trip. It was quite something to experience. I had the most amazing time there. I volunteered my spring break to go help others that have way less then me, and it was great! I am also very proud about making the Provincial Basketball team in previous years. My knee injury didn’t allow me to try out this year, but that is a barrier I have overcome. I know that getting surgery will really benefit me in the long run. “Short term pain, long term gain.” that’s my motto.
11 Staying FitI have multiple ways of planning to stay fit. I need to strengthen my knee for basketball, and by doing this it is requiring me to stay fit. I also need to have endurance for basketball, so as soon as I am able to run I definitely will. However until then I will be cycling. I need to be in top shape for basketball and soccer. This means I will be working out in the summer so I will be strong for both seasons. Some of us girls have already started to plan a summer workout schedule. In the future I plan to play university basketball. This will require me to stay in shape throughout my basketball career. I enjoy working out and staying in shape. That is why I think that I will be able to stay in shape and healthy in school and after school.
12 Eating HealthyI believe that I eat quite healthy. Sure there are those days when I binge on ice cream or cookies, but I know what is good and bad for me. I have had many nutritionists talk to teams before and from what I have heard I eat very healthy. I really like most vegetables, and I LOVE fruit. My parents have been starting to eat healthier, which has caused everyone in my household to alter their diet somewhat. As an athlete I am aware of what foods have positive effects and which ones have negative effects. It is my own responsibility to eat healthy, and I believe I do a good job.
13 Managing Stress and Relationships I think that I manage stress very well. I know how to organize, so I usually do not have much stress. However when I do get stressed out I usually keep it under control. I first figure out if it is worth stressing about. Most of the time it isn't. I will then figure out how to fix it. Whether it is just taking a few deep breathes or making an “action plan”. When it comes to relationships I believe I have very healthy ones with friends and family. I have grown up with a very good family environment. My friends and I also have good relationships. I will continue to manage my stress the way I have all this time. As for relationships, I know what is healthy and what isn’t. So I plan to keep my relationships as healthy as possible.
14 Budget PlanI know that post secondary education is very expensive, so I have made a rough outline of my budget plan. I will apply for bursaries and hopefully get some money there. I also plan to get a scholarship for basketball. I will most likely have to take out some type of student loan, but my parents and grandparents both have money put away to pay for some of my schooling. Finally I will be working during summers, and if my schooling permits it, I will work throughout the year. I plan to only spend my money on my needs, instead of y wants, but there is no promising that I will do that all the time.
