I started playing softball when I was seven and I have had the passion for it since then. Softball has helped me develop as a person in many different ways not just as a softball player. It has helped me become a better student like helping relive stress allowing me to focus and get better grades on my tests. My academic goal is to become a surgeon. I understand it is a long process but I am committed to do whatever it takes to accomplish this goal. Academics is very important to me and I would love to go to a school that will challenge me with my academics. Through my experiences I have learned that by trusting myself I can achieve anything I put my mind to.
