I started playing tee-ball at 4 years old. Technically, I was a shortstop, but I couldn’t be confined to any one position. I bolted across the field in bright pink Dora shoes to take balls from second, third, and even first base. Years later, while I have learned not to take the first baseman’s balls, I still hold the same passion for the game, competitive mindset, and work ethic. At a young age, these traits helped propel me to success in both baseball and softball - I juggled being the only girl at the California state baseball championship twice with competing with an A-level travel team in California. As I grew older and moved to Chicago, I was able to succeed in the classroom and on the travel field while being the first female varsity baseball athlete in the history of my high school. I hope to continue my academic and athletic success by making a meaningful contribution to a college softball program.
