Starting at the age of seven years old on a 10u league ball team, I found the love of the game. I started to love the game even more when I found a position I loved when I was eight. However, there were bumps in the path I was on. My major obstacles were my mentality and I faced a few injuries. When I was ten, I had my first ever injury, and my mental game was depleting. Although, my mental game was low, I still had a drive to be a better player for my team and person in general.
Throughout my years in softball, I've learned many things about myself. I've learned that there are sacrifices that you have to make, and that you can't win a game individually but as a team. I constantly set goals for myself, and I strive to meet them. I want to conquer my academic goals in high school and college. I want to get all A's throughout high school, and graduate with honors in college.
What makes me different from other players is the leadership skills I have developed in softball and other programs. I also strive to make sure to stay optimistic and make sure others are up-beat during a game when it is a tough battle. I'm also different by having a drive to be better in my pitching, or any skill that I need to have. I love to learn and to improve on things I am lacking in.
