I stand out from others and have been influenced to who I am because of my parents, siblings, grandparents, hardships, and learning to work hard for what I want to be successful. I became interested in softball at a young age due to having older siblings. I would go to softball games to watch my older sister. I was not like most kids my age who would go off on their own to play, I would sit and watch the game asking my dad questions and really start to learn the rules and the way of the game. That's when I knew I fell in love with softball. My older sister has always been my backbone and my rock of a supporter. Softball had my interest because as much as it is a team sport it is also dependent on the singular players such as good hitters, pitchers, infielders, outfielders, and catchers. There was always something that I can do to make myself better. With softball there is constantly room for improvement to make myself better as well as help my team achieve higher goals. I have learned that there is always constant room to grow. There will be bad nights, great nights as well as bad games and great games. I have learned to take constructive crisicism and use it to my power to become better and work on the areas where I lack. My academic goals for high school is to end with a strong grade point average while still involved in extra curricular activites such as sports and National Honor Society. For college I would like to double major in Business management and marketing. I would like to also join a few clubs within my degree to gain friendships and have a great gpa. I never really had to overcome any obstacles because the Manson Northwest Webster softball team has always been welcoming and supportive. I believe I have the talent to compete for a college team and the work-ethic and leadership to make an impact on your program. As a three sport athlete I know that I have what it takes to be a leader on your team.
