I started playing softball when I was 4 years old on a recreation tee ball team. As I continued to play over the years, I realized I had a passion for softball. One of the biggest things I have learned by playing the game is that you have to believe in yourself. It took a long time to gain the self-confidence I have today in not only softball, but in everything I do. I have a sign in my room that reads “Today I will do what others won’t so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.” I strive to give extra effort every day, whether it’s to raise my math grade or to add an extra mile per hour on my fastball.
I take pride in my strong work ethic both on the field and in the classroom, where I strive for straight A’s. I appreciate the time my family, coaches and teammates have spent with me to help me improve just a little bit every day and have learned that if you work hard you will never be defeated.
Finally, I look forward to reaching my goal of being the best student-athlete I can going forward in both high school and college. Through hard work, dedication, and commitment to my teammates, I believe I will be an asset to any college program.
