Experienced Example
"I had a student on a soccer team I was coaching who was having trouble in school. He loved soccer, but couldn't play if he didn't pass his classes. I took time to get to know him and found he was very smart, just very discouraged. The longer he was on my team, I noticed he felt more confident. He was able to keep his grades up and ended up getting a scholarship to go to college."
