Personal Statement

Hello my name is Lorentee V. Crossley.

I am a very passionate person for sports. One time when I was 10 I ran at a State track meet and won for the 100 meter dash. I then went the national track meet. Unfortunately I lost but I did come in second place. My prize money was $1,500 and I put it in the bank for college. It was a fun experience to run against people all around the U.S. I also played football, baseball, wrestling, lacrosse, and basketball. I was the captain for all of these sports teams. I even went to the state champions with my football team.

We’ll let me start off by saying I am a very efficient person in many ways. I love pets and different kinds of animals, from exotic animals like lions and peacocks, to domestic animals like Siberian huskies and Tabby cats. I am also globally minded in ways you couldn’t think of. I can type more than 40 words a minute if you wanted me to. I can use many programs such as PowerPoint; Excel, Moviemaker, Word, OneNote.
