Adam Dowell

My name is Adam Dowell and I am a changed man. There are so many questions I wish I had the answer to and so many occasions I encounter where I urge to know the outcome. However, I understand I will never be able to conquer the mysteries of the future until I meet them down the road. Change will occur overtime and we must embrace that aspect of life. This gives me the opportunity to sit back and reflect on my past experiences.

I was born on June 12th, 1994 in Durham, North Carolina; a state I called home for the first 12 years of my life. This birthday helps describe my personality. It is at the beginning of summer which is definitely my favorite time of year because of the overall joy and life in the atmosphere. That is the type of person I try to be; one who is living optimistically and with simple happiness. No matter what chages throw me off, it is important to understand that they happen for a reason!

Throughout my life, my family and sports have molded me into the mind and body I have become. They have surely taught me that only hard work and dedication will help you reach success. I see this in my father, the first member of his family to attend college, who is now a successful banker and a major inspiration in my life. Good things come to those who wait but that waiting includes taking action. I have found that perseverance goes along way. I see this in sports. I have been playing basketball and football almost all my life and can credit myself to having successful high school careers in both. However, recently picking up golf, I realize how long something takes to able to be truly confident in your ability.

No matter what changes life throws at you, take them in stride. I know where I've been but I don't know where I'm going. My future is an enigma.
