I've played softball since I was seven years old and a pitcher since I was nine. Next to academics and family, softball is the most important part of my life. It's my true love and constantly on my mind. My friends laugh at me because I never leave home without a softball. You'll always find one at the bottom of my blue Nike backpack I take everywhere. My goals are to get high SAT/ACT scores, get accepted to a great college with a great physician assistant program, and play college softball! I can get along with all people with different personalities and always treat my team like family. I am always willing to learn. All I want is to achieve my maximum potential in order to achieve my dreams. I know I'm not the best athlete but I have the drive, desire, and passion to do WHATEVER it takes to be the best! My big brother always says, "No days off." I used to be a nine-year old that would throw almost every pitch over the back stop to becoming a starter on my high school varsity team with three pitching starts, one of them being my first career no-hitter. I was also the designated hitter. To most, softball is just a game, but to me softball is life.
