Good People

This past week was a good one for myself. I had a lot of stuff going on and really made the most of every opportunity that came about. During the week I was challenged with a lot of school work, however embraced it rather than letting it become a hassle. In the process of it I made a lot of mistakes, however by the end of the week I felt that I had learned from these mistakes and ended up feeling very accomplished after submitting it. Coaching was great as always, teaching the kids a ton of stuff that they had no clue about, and helping them to reach goals never imaginable. Being able to coach all different age groups when available is awesome because of the impact it has on the kids, and how they have really looked up to me as a mentor.


This weekend, I got to travel down to cork to meet up with some of the other SCL scholars at the local Oktoberfest. We really had a great time, constantly laughing, and enjoying the festival with each other. This experience truly made me realize how lucky I am to have the chance to meet such great people from other parts of the United States, that I might not have had to the privilege if it wasn’t for the SportChangesLife family. I was once told, “Life is not about what you do but who you do it with”. This has stayed with me for a long time, and I have found it be very true. The people you are with make the experiences that much better.


On that note, I would just like to thank the scholars that were down in cork this weekend with me (you know who you are), you guys made the experience a great one.


Keep tuning in to follow my journey not only in Limerick but around all of Ireland.
