Ms. Adom Writing Seminar April 5, 2013 Happy When Others Are Jaime Montalvo has been all over the place. He has lived all over the world, and did not grow up in the greatest of conditions since his family was not the wealthiest by any means. However, Jaime holds a high standard for himself that has taken him places and will continue to take him places in life. My name is Jaime Montalvo, and I am a tennis professional at the Chapel Hill Country Club. Those who don’t know me well probably see me as an ordinary person, but really I am an interesting man with what I consider to be an excellent story and work ethic. Throughout my childhood, my family rarely lived in one place for more than a few years. I was born in Puerto Rico, and lived in places all over the United States and even in England. I eventually went on to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. There, I really got into the sport of tennis. I was not a beginner, but it was not until college that I really embraced the sport and grew a passion for it. I feel that I am extremely passionate about everything I do and I set a very high standard for myself. I am the type of guy that is happy when those around me are happy. I define myself as a true people person or people pleaser. What motivates me to keep working hard each and every day is my drive to keep all of the members happy. The most stressful part of my job is when a member is unhappy about something. I hope that this speaks to how deeply I care about the
country club and its reputation. I always try to stay calm under pressure and very rarely do I show signs of having any temper at all. I also try to be as outgoing as possible because I feel that it is a quality one must have to be successful in what I do. In return for what I give to the members and the club, I am beloved and appreciated by most of the many members of the Chapel Hill Country Club. I do not really like to belittle my work, because it is certainly a high priority....
