Personal Statement

I started softball when I was about 7 years old and it was a rec team. The thrill of winning as a team and not just individually was a different feeling for me altogether. Unlike every other sport, softball is so much like life because you can go through hitting slumps where you’re hitting six for ten and the next day you strike out five times. Or you try so hard to throw a strike, but no matter what it’s not falling your way. You can learn so much from softball, not just how to play the game, but how to be a better person in the real world, which is what I absolutely love about softball.

While I am very passionate about softball, my academics are also important to me. As long as the college has a great program for my major and has softball, I believe it's a quality option. Aspirations for my future are studying animation/illustration; sometimes it's hard to come by especially since it's a really specific major. I do also really love a good campus environment which I'm sure every campus has in their own way, but to me, I have to feel comfortable in order for me to like the campus. In academics, I have a 4.00 in which I work very hard for in all my classes. Everyday, I look forward to going to school, not just so I could see my friends and socialize during classes, but to actually learn and get ready for my future, that's just around the corner. My education is the most important, it doesn't matter if I'm the best softball player in the whole world, if I have bad grades, it's not going to get me anywhere in life. So it's extremely important to have a good balance, for me: God, education, softball, then everything else.
