"The area I have developed the most in because of sports is definitely as a leader. My confidence levels have skyrocketed. I am able to maintain my confidence, even when I make a mistake. I am also more poised when I am in a difficult situation. I am much more comfortable with approaching my teachers if I have a question. I am able to lead my peers in discussions during a class or an assembly. These instances are all examples of how sports have boosted my morale and helped me become a leader."
