Ever since I began playing softball when I was seven years old, I have wanted to continue playing for as long as I possibly can. The passion I have for softball is too great to put into words. For many years, I have worked hard to improve myself as a player and as a person in general. Softball has brought out the best in me both mentally and even academically. I tend not to stress out as much knowing that things shouldn’t be as stressful in life. I can go on and on all about softball but there are not enough words in the world to explain the commitment I have to this sport.
As a student, I can say I have struggled a lot. I've had many ups and downs throughout the 12 years I had in public education. I have struggled with moderate to severe anxiety for the majority of my life and it did make certain things harder. Playing Softball was even especially hard. I never thought that if I played a sport, my anxiety would get better. There are times where I thought it wouldn't get better. Softball helped change that and helped me find a way to try and do better in school. I grew somewhat academically and grew stronger mentally. I will continue to grow stronger. I'm not here to talk about my achievements. I just hope this gives people some insight into who I am and let people be curious as to how much I can actually grow because I'm still growing and getting stronger. The best has yet to come.
