Many people constantly wonder why I continue snowboarding, even through all the life-threatening injuries I have faced, caused by this sport. I have even wondered the same thing. In fact, I came very close to quitting. But I am not a quitter, I am a fighter. And through all of my injuries, snowboarding has made me that much more of a better person. It changed my outlook on life, to not take it for granted. It focused my dedication to the gym, to staying strong and in shape, which is so essential to everyone. It made me so passionate about healthy eating, and attracted me into going to college in pursue of a dietetics degree. And finally, it taught me one of the most important lessons in life, to never give up, no matter how hard things get.
So in conclusion, Snowboarding has made me the person I am today, and I will forever be grateful for that.
I will always love snowboarding!
ALWAYS having a smile on my face when I snowboard.
