My level of determination is like no other. When I began playing travel ball my first coach didn't believe in me because I was in his words "the little girl". He didn't think I would ever be good enough. I remember at the time this really hurt. I would do everything in my power to impress him. I can remember my parents telling me it's ok and that size won't always matter but work ethic and technique will. So I kept battling and working outside of the practices. As much as this hurt at the time he actually did me a favor. He taught me that I control my own destiny. He made me determined to prove him wrong and I am doing just that. I will continue to work daily at achieving my goals. I will not stop learning or improving at the game I love.
