I have always set high goals for myself. Academically and athletically I continually strive to do my personal best. I am determined to play highly competitive softball in college, while getting a degree in either Sports Management or Nutrition.
Playing softball for the last seven years has taught me that in order to get better I need to put in the work and be personally motivated. My motivation comes from my family and my coaches who have always believed in me and my athletic abilities. It also comes from knowing that in order to play college softball I need to put in 100%.
I currently play on a 16u Club team and it has taught me a lot about responsibility and accountability. Most of the girls on my team are three years older than me. Some want to go on and play college softball, and others don't. The ones that do, go home after practice and work out, or pitch more, or hit off the tee. They know that in order to get to that next level, they need to put in the work. They have taught me that I need to take accountability and do the same. I put in the time when no one is looking. I take weekly lessons in both hitting and catching on top of my weekly practices with my team, and do workouts specifically designed for me by a former D1 player at UCLA to make me stronger and get me prepared to play college softball.
I strive to be a leader on and off the field. I am coach-able and a good teammate. I can't wait to live my dream.
