My goal throughout life has always been to do what you do with a passion. The sport of softball is my passion and has been since I was five. Recently, I have become more serious about my softball talent and wish to continue playing in college. The hard work I have put into improving my skills in athletics and academics is paying off. I am in the top 10 of my class and maintain a 4.0 GPA. I take all honor courses, including my math class being two years ahead of my current grade level. I manage to balance my time between sports and academics and exceed well in both. As a softball player, I am able to play any position except pitch. My primary position is at shortstop and I have played many seasons there. In the community, I am the secretary of Girl Up, which is an organization that helps fund money for girls in third world countries and an active member of Key Club.
