At a young age I was very passionate about sports. My parents signed me up for just about any sport they could starting at age 5. They always loved me, supported me and came to every one of my games over the years. I was always taught to work hard, never give up and it will eventually pay off. Also always be a good sport win or lose. I was and still am a very competitive person. My parents were my greatest inspiration.
