Matthew Loftin: A Little About Me

On March 13, 2002, I was born at St. Mary’s hospital in Athens, Georgia. My parents Laurie and Jamey, decided to give me the Hebrew name Matthew. My birth also resulted in my brother, Dylan, becoming a big brother. Since that foggy and cloudy day of March 13, I have grown a lot and experienced many life-changing events, including a pandemic.
“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” The quote from Babe Ruth can be applied to many aspects of my life. For example, my mother has always described me as fearless, and since a very young age, I would climb up any tree in sight. Calm, ambitious, and brave are three ways that help better describe me as a person. Many people, throughout my short life, have helped me develop these skills. For instance, my parents, my brother, and some coaches have helped me grow tremendously.
Childhood is filled with so many memories that shape our lives. My favorite childhood memories include the birthdays my parents would throw for me and the fun I would have during them. My most significant achievement so far is winning the State Championship for my high school soccer team. Accomplishing that goal was an incredible feeling that I’ll never forget. Furthermore, soccer has given me such joy that I am currently playing in college, and I am trying to become a coach one day.
Overall, events are what shape you as a person. Whether the events are positive or negative, they will ultimately help me grow as a person. I hope to experience a lot more challenging circumstances throughout my life.
