Humans of FHC: John Samsell


“One of the hardest things I’ve ever done was going to J. Robinson wrestling camp; it was the single most difficult thing I’ve ever done. We had to work out almost four times a day, which was really tough. At practices, you were sore from the previous day, but you had to keep pushing yourself at every practice. It taught me that I can push myself harder, and with a team, I can do more than I will ever think I can. Joining wrestling has really shaped me; it gave me whole different attitude about what hard work means. ‘Work hard to achieve your goals’ would probably be the words I live by. It’s just something my parents instilled in me because if you have a good attitude and work hard, you’ll get good results. I would say that high school is really important, and you should work hard to do well. You should really try to succeed in high school, but at the same time, it’s not a make or break thing. You have a whole life ahead of you with plenty of other opportunities to succeed.”
