Alex states, “An important part of my education has come from school sports. I have had the chance to look up to outstanding role models and eventually become one myself. School sport has taught me how to be a valued team member and how to deal with the responsibilities and expectations that come with team involvement……It has taught me that believing is achieving…..The most valuable thing that high school sport has taught me is to never give up and believe in myself.”
