Progression the fundamental need of all humans. Even from the beginning of time all we ever wanted to do was get better. From technological developments in our everyday lives to the creation of new vaccines, we s humans only want to improve. The desire for improvement also extends to the ameliorating personal skills. With the help of Beat the Streets facilitating my skills in wrestling and academics has been a lot easier.

I’ve always been studious, but when it comes to school I struggle with standardized tests. Beat the Streets has made it their goal  to make me comfortable in a test taking setting. I’ve been getting help with ACT Prep and I can see how much I’ve improved day by day. This also applies to wrestling, I want to be great and finally realized the only way to achieve that is to create a foundation. BTS has given me that foundation. Wrestling is one of best sports because improvement is easily measured, Every match I’ve had I have only gotten better. With the help I’ve received this summer I know I can make it to states this year.
