I started Field Hockey in fifth grade, but didn't get into the sport until my seventh grade season began. This was the year I saw my first High School game. It gave me inspiration to play at a higher level. My high school has a great tradition of field hockey. Girls aspire to play at Emmaus High School due to the teams impeccable record of achievements.
The field hockey program at Emmaus High School is much more demanding (compared to middle school ball) than I anticipated it to be, and pushes me to be the best possible player I could be. The challenge of playing at this level gives me an adrenalin rush! I believe playing at the competition rate my high school plays at is preparing me for college ball. I strive to never give up and keep a positive attitude on and off the field. I can anticipate plays, and use deception to deceive my opponents. I also believe in off season training. Even if my other teammates are not training, I think I should push myself to keep on working even after the season is over.
After I graduate high school I wish to pursue my dream of becoming a physical therapist. This occupation allows me to do what I love best, to help people who need assistance for a speedy recovery. Growing up my mom has taught me to treat people with respect. She also taught me to not only help people because they need it, but to help people because its the right thing to do. My mom has really gave me the inspiration to pursue my dream of helping people.
I wish to attend a college that can allow me to achieve my dreams of becoming a physical therapist, and my dreams of playing at a college level. I am open to all options that can fulfill my academic, and field hockey needs.
