My love for the game continued to grow after starting out playing t-ball as a kid. From there on out, I always knew I wanted to play softball at the college level any way I could. My biggest priorities have been softball and school my entire life. I push myself in both to make sure I maintain my 4.0 GPA and be the best player I can to help my team and reach my goals. I have become very good at handling my classes (including honors and college credit plus classes) and still putting in my time on the field. I plan to continue to be a good student when I further my education in the medical field, while also playing the sport I love. I make a good candidate for any team because I know my priorities and I am not easily distracted. My team always comes first, even if it means I don't necessarily get what I want. I leave everything on the field so I am sure I don't regret a play I didn't make. Throughout my whole life, I have always stood out from everyone else because of the leadership role I put on myself. I know that many people look to me to set an example, which pushes me to do exactly that. I constantly have a smile on my face and bring out the bright side of every bad situation. My mindset in school and on the field for as long as I can remember has been "next play", because there is always an opprotunity to make up for something negative that has happened. My academics are always my first priority and I do everything I can to make sure I don't have to worry about my grades. In doing so, I am hoping to be given the opprotunity to continue to work hard on the field as well.
