friend that I do mention in the essay for today’s purpose his name is going to be Theodore and he will be from Kazakhstan woo I have very nice so here we go it’s a hot Texas Sun beat down upon my neck a fast ball whizzed past my bat and into the catcher’s mitt after you had another strikeout I trudged back to the dugout thoughts of failure filled my mind of my confidence slowly waiting I wasn’t accustomed to anything less than success before high school I prospered in youth athletics while living in South Dakota I had a phenomenal baseball coach to transform my robbed potential into success on the baseball diamond unfortunately my father’s Air Force career demanded that we move before my baseball season without me my team went on to win the city state championships advancing all the way to the Little League World when I was younger my family moved to not affect my athletic performance the difficulties began I was torn from my tight-knit community in Northern Virginia and forced to adjust to life in West Texas prior to the start of my freshman year I struggled to regain the close friends and relationships I left behind for the first time in my life I felt completely alone and high school baseball was my opportunity to establish myself among my new peers confident from my previous experiences I arrived at my new high school’s baseball tryouts looking forward to success

myself to Theodore was a Kazakhstan II refugee I empathize with his struggle as a new student soon realizing how similar we were Theodore struggled for stability and opportunity in his new home while I sought structure and friendship in the wake of my own migrant lifestyle I learned that Theodore was asked to play for the varsity soccer team as a freshman something rarely even asked of sophomores his father had refused him the opportunity the leaving has done had more important commitments to his family in schoolwork despite Theodore’s diligent work ethic he was denied the Liberty to experience his passion while I couldn’t even work hard enough to realize mine this friendship inspired me to work harder and recognize opportunity while I helped him dream bigger as he integrated into American society I refocused my efforts on my athletic training tirelessly improving my pitching mechanics similarly began to set new goals in the classroom as well achieving more than I ever thought possible my dedication and resilience resulted in my selection the baseball team’s primary pitcher the next year while my guidance at Theodore eventually led his father to reconsider it son soccer participation Theodore dominated varsity soccer team the next year as a striker Theodore helped me focus my goals while I helped him expand his horizons to the realm of his own although coming from different sides of the globe we had much in common we were both persistent students with our own unique obstacles and together we overcame even though I’ve moved away from Theodore in West Texas I still talk to him often I’m no longer content with mere success but always setting new goals to build upon my past achieve success truly is more fulfilling in temper the diverse I hope you guys
