My name is Erin Gosselin; I had become very interested in softball around my seventh-grade year. My seventh-grade year was the year when I decided to play on the school team, I had become tremendously passionate about softball. Farther into my softball career, I was placed in many clinics to improve my skills. Playing softball I realized that I am competitive, although I am a good teammate. I feel it is incredibly meaningful to pick up your teammates, especially when they feel like they "messed up a play." I have overcome a wide variety of obstacles in my softball career, especially to get myself to where I am today. Some of them being, practicing fundamental skills over and over to get the hang of what I was doing, seeking my parents to place me into clinics to improve my skills, also gaining good coping skills to relieve frustration when the practice or game is not going right. Through softball, I have learned how to be a kind teammate also a more skilled player. In high school I plan to continue to get good grades, to continue staying on task so I can complete my work. I feel it is extremely essential for me to accomplish those goals because I know where I want to go in my future, my prime goals are to study dental hygiene, also to continue performing softball throughout college. I enjoy being a student-athlete, and I am also extremely committed and dedicated to attaining my goals.
