I've been playing softball for as long as I can remember. My mom is the one who really inspired me to become a pitcher, since that's what she was. Because she played Division 1 softball, I'd love to do the same; actually, I'd love to do 100 times better than she did, and I know I can because I really love softball and work so hard in order to achieve my dreams. My whole life is revolved around softball and I'm not complaining AT ALL. Aside from softball, however, I love being on camera. I'm currently enrolled in the Performing Arts Academy at my school, and as much work as that brings on, I manage to make it work. My grades in high school have been pretty good so far. I'm taking all honors classes and at least 1 AP a year. My GPA is currently a 3.7 (unweighted) and I passed my AP psychology course from last year. Of course being a student athlete alone brings on many challenges, but also being involved in the TV production program at my school brings on a whole other level of responsibility and most importantly, time management. For example, in March, I was invited to compete in a TV production competition in Washington, DC but I had a high school game the day of the flight, so I had to leave a day later than everyone else because I knew I couldn't let my team down, especially being the starting pitcher. So yeah, I really try to be involved in school extracurriculars while still always giving my team 100%.
