My name is Chantelle Bouchard. I am 17 years old. I am a junior at Biddeford High School. I want to pursue nursing or possibly becoming a physician assistant. I want to be able to provide the best care for people who need it.
I play two sports softball being my main and basketball being a keep me going sport. Through my years of playing softball I have been exposed to great opportunities. Such as playing at the 18u+ level in 8th grade. Being asked to travel to Georgia and Florida on an elite team. Freshman year I was starting varsity and got named rookie of the year and got the MVP award along with making the underclassmen all star game team. Due to a pandemic I didn’t have a sophomore softball season. For basketball I made varsity as a freshman and got the rising star award and my sophomore year making 2nd team all conference.
In softball my number one goal is to lead by example and be a team leader. My positions are (C, OF, 1B) in that order. I play for the Southern Maine River Rats 18u. I work hard for what I get. I see my hitting coach multiple times a week and work on the fielding aspect as well.
Along with sports I work hard in school as well. I have made honor roll a couple times and making sure that my classes in high school with make me stand out. I got into the CNA program at my school to get a head start in helping me be successful in the medical field. I have gotten complements from teachers on how hard I work in school even if I’m struggling with a certain subject.
The past years I have been paying it forward to my schools and to little league softball organizations. In school I have built a relationship with kids who have down syndrome. I have been asked to attend the special Olympics and when I have a second to go see them in the classroom. For little league softball I have helped out with clinics, tryouts, and umpiring games. That’s something I take a lot of pride in.
