There are a lot of great students at Samueli Academy, so much that the list would be really long, but, one of them, is a freshman named Roberto Garcia. “I try my best to do the best I can do,” stated by Roberto himself. He is on the Varsity Volleyball team at the school, and is also taking Biology, all as a freshman. Even with all this stuff he has to do, he still pushes to do the best he can.
He considers school to be quite stressful sometimes, but he doesn’t let that encourage him to give up. Roberto states that, “No one can reach their goal, if they don’t try.” That’s how he became the first freshmen on the Varsity Volleyball and Soccer team. So, if you don’t give up, then you can reach your goal as well, just like Roberto.
Diego is also a freshmen and on the Varsity Volleyball team. He states that Roberto Garcia is a great student and a great teammate, and that, “He doesn’t only treat me like a friend, but also as a brother.” As you can tell, they both represent sportsmanship.
A friend of Roberto’s, who is also a freshman, named Ernie. Who is like a best friend to him and is always around him. Ernie mentions, “I think he’s nice to everyone, and he treats them like they are special to him.” We can see that he treats all his friends and teammates like a family. “I hope there are more people like him out there,” says Ernie.
Even his Volleyball coach believes that Roberto is a great team player and student. “I think Robert is great. He doesn’t give up easily, and I feel like he tries the best that he can do at everything he does,” explains Coach Henry. Roberto shows his team that there is always a chance in everything, and that as a team, they are stronger.
As said by Roberto Garcia, “If you want your goals to come true, remember that it's not going to come to you, you are going to have to catch it.”
