Goals & Aspirations: “My main goal is to graduate high school with advanced honors and qualify for the Nevada State Championships for pole vault in track and field. In the future, I intend on graduating college to pursue a career as a physical therapist to help those who have sustained disabilities, impairments or limitations in their overall physical function.”

Neil Looks Up To: “My sister is someone I look up to because she is one of my biggest supporters. She coaches me and encourages me to do my best in pole vaulting because she was a pole vaulter in high school as well. Even though she can be hard on me at times, I know she is pushing me to my full potential.”

Part of the Solution: “One of the biggest issues facing young adults today is bullying. Whether it is verbal or physical, criticizing another human being for who they are is completely wrong, especially when the person is contemplating taking their own life because of the harassment. I will stick up for those who feel belittled for being different and urge others to stop making teens feel judged based on who they are or what they are passionate about.”
