My dream since I was very young was to be able to play softball in college. I started playing the game in kindergarten and haven't stopped since.
What makes me different is my height. I'm 6'. This gives me an advantage as a first baseman which is like my second home. I've maintained a solid batting/slugging percentage.
During my freshman year, I was honored to be awarded MVP for my varsity team, 2nd Team All-District, and my first letter. My sophomore year brought me my 2nd year letter, 2nd Team All-District and the "Golden Glove" award on my team. My junior year I made 1st team All-District, 2nd team All-Metro and Offensive Player of the Year. I'm also very proud to say that I led the state of NM in RBI's for the 2018/2019 season. I strive to be my best in softball and I'm trying to constantly improve.
Another part of me that makes me unique is that I'm hearing impaired. I can hear 80% in my left ear and 20% in my right. I wear a hearing aid on my left ear. Through the years, this has never really been an issue with my coaches. Most of the time they're loud enough or I'm always watching for my signs. And, I can hear, just not as well as most people. I don't let it get in my way of pushing myself to be the best I can be. It probably makes me push a little harder.
I've been told that my passion and happy energy is infectious on the field. I get excited for accomplishments and I always try to make people smile.
I work hard in school I'll graduate in 2020. I've made the varsity team as a starter all three years.
Thank you for your time.
