My name is Justine Luong and I am a 5'3" hardworking softball player. I put my all into this sport and will do whatever it takes to better myself as I grow as a player. One of my most memorable moments of my high school career was being named MVP on Junior Varsity as a freshman. I was also the captain of the team, which gave me more confidence throughout the season.
Towards the end of my first season of high school ball, I was pulled up to varsity. Being one of the youngest girls on the team made it very intimidating, but that didn't stop me from working my hardest on and off the field. This sport has given me so many opportunities and has given me many life long friends over the years, and I cannot wait to continue playing the sport I love in college.
When it comes to choosing what college I want to attend, my options are very open. I have mostly been looking at colleges in the states of California, Oregon, Washington and Nevada, but I wouldn't mind moving further. I have a very open mind about colleges and where I'd like to live. Location is not a big factor as to where I want to attend college, as long as I am playing ball and get a good education, I will be happy.
As my high school career continues, I would like to graduate with at least a 3.8 or higher. I want to succeed in completing my biomedical courses and finish all 4 years with a foreign language class. As far as college goes, I would love to major in nursing, psychology or sociology, but those may change over the course of my high school career.
Not only do I want to grow as a person, but I want to grow as a softball player. Over the years, I want to better myself in every way. One of my goals since the very beginning has been playing softball at a high level. I love this sport more and more each day and I could not imagine a life without it. Being a student athlete is a tough job, but with the right dedication and passion, I believe you can achieve what you dream of.
