SPORTS LESSONS: "Being an athlete has taught me that no matter how much you want to win, you have to be dedicated and put in the hundred percent effort in order to succeed. ... To do well in a sport you have to be open-minded, willing to try new things and have a positive relationship with your teammates and coaches."
