My name is Megan Jewell, and I am 17 years old. I am approximately 5'9" and 150 pounds. Ideally, I would prefer a college in the southeast region of the United States. An enormous factor is that the college provides a Christ centered family atmosphere and has an Communications major, Journalism major, and a Biblical Studies major. I love Jesus and communicating His love to others through writing, speaking, and film. My dream job would be to write curriculum and bible study books for an organization such as Lifeway or to start my own nonprofit organization and travel the world on mission trips. I have substantial goals both academically and athletically. I am working to maintain straight A's throughout high school and pass my AP tests. In addition, I hope to earn an ACT score of 30 or above before I graduate. In addition, I am excited to play another year of softball for the mighty ASH Trojans. My goal is to lead the team to a state championship and to show the girls that hard work pays off. I hope to be a mentor to the incoming freshmen, and help them find their place at ASH by promoting a positive atmosphere and being there for them when they need me to. In college, I desire to maintain honor roll while having an impact on my team's success. I want to play at a competitive level where my team makes it to the conference championship games. As a young girl, I always knew I wanted to be competitive in athletics; however, it wasn't until I was 6 that I found my true passion: softball. I love the competitiveness of the game. I love that no one can win or lose the game. It is a team effort. Each player is a piece of the puzzle. Anyone can win or lose any given day and success is strictly measured on one’s dedication. In fact, when I was 3, I broke my arm severely. The doctors told me I would never straighten my arm out again. Determined to beat the odds, my parents made up games that would gradually strengthen my arm. Eventually, with my parents' extraordinary support and the Lord, I was able to straighten my arm out again. The scar remains to this day and I have truly learned to never take a second on the field for granted because without the grace of God, I would not be playing.
