You come for the robots. You stay for the family.
It still hasn't hit. We did this thing. I can say that I am a world champion. There was one time in fifth grade where I took part in a trivia contest at the library. I came in fourth and later complained that I never won anything. That, my little ten year old self, is no longer true. An the thing I love about FIRST is that you aim to compete with teams at their best and I feel like your job and your goal should be to help teams get to their best. You talk to people and make connections.
It's not just running around a field trying to score - don't get me wrong, I love lacrosse - it's making sure everyone is learning everything they can, meeting everyone they can, networking with everyone they can, and meeting others who spend their time in similar ways you do - expanding the new knowledge to everybody else . This is FIRST. This is my life. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
