Hello, my name is Jeremy Kohn. I am 21 years old from Buford, Ga with a younger brother at the age of 16. Outdoor activities has been a huge part of my life since I was a young boy. at a very young age, my parents encouraged me to stay active and entertain myself outside of the house rather than playing video games 24/7. Having grown up making my own fun and using imagination, me and my friends got ourselves into things that have made memories that will last a life time.
The most influential part of my childhood was the introduction to motorcycles at a very young age. My dad bought me my first dirt bike at the age of 4, from that day forward my life had a thrilling feeling to it. I soon gained the urge to race as I developed my skills on board the bike. through racing, I gained friends that played important roles in my life and my development not only as a racer. However, the dream of being a professional racer was cut short due to my interest in other sports such as football and lacrosse. I got my feet wet in football and then could see myself becoming an outstanding football player. This was until lacrosse came around…
My lacrosse career started the spring of my 5th grade year. It was brand new to the Gwinnett county area, so I gave it a shot and fell in love with the game. this sport has been extremely beneficial to my life and development as a man. As you may know, lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet, behind hockey of course. Being apart of a team since a young age taught me skills such as Leadership skills, Management skills not only with people, but time and equipment, team building skills, but what the game taught me the most was patience. While everything around you is moving so fast, patience is key. Being able to mentally slow things down and see the best option has been able to translate to the business environment. The longer I played the game the more I fell in love with it. My dream was to play college ball at any of the levels. Finally, in April of my senior year, I took my visit to Piedmont and knew that it was the place for me.
Once arriving at Piedmont, I quickly settled in and began the newest chapter in life. I chose the field of Business Management and from there have gained wisdom and knowledge that have increased my value to the business world. During my four years on campus at Piedmont I have been a starter on the Men’s Lacrosse team, as well as helping Piedmont to their first ever USA South Championship.
Fast forward to Spring 2020…. I am in my last semester on this beautiful campus, with plans of graduating in July of this year. I will be leaving Piedmont with a Bachelor’s Degree in Management, with the option of pursuing my Master’s for this degree and playing lacrosse in the UK has been brought to my attention. This would be a one year Masters program that is allowing me to continue my dream of playing lacrosse at the next level, with the slight chance of signing a professional contract in Great Britain.
To close, once I make my decision on my post collegiate decision on whether or not I will continue my education and lacrosse career I will be entering the field of banking with hopes of becoming a loan officer. I am extremely anxious to start the newest chapter of my life and look forward to all the challenges and greatness the rest of my life has to offer for me.
