High school was where I first realized the impact teachers can have on their students. I went to Gilbert High School and two of my teachers, Mr. Thiele and Mr. Fujino, were also my tennis coaches. They taught me about life and school. In the classroom and on the tennis court, they helped broaden my horizons and opened my eyes to opportunities and different things I could do with my life. If I had to pick the lessons that stood out the most to me, I would say to expect more of myself and to always work hard.
