I came across an inspirational quote years ago, "your talent is God's gift to you; what you do with it is your gift back to God."
My talent is softball and I work hard so I can do well. And my relationships with coaches and teammates pushes me to get better.
In 6th grade, I developed a relationship with the varsity softball coach for my high school. Because of his encouragement and belief in me, I developed enough confidence in myself that I can play softball in college. I have had tremendous support so that I can be in a position to make this journey happen.
I love being part of a team and trying to fulfill the role of "see a need, fill a need." That is the "gift" I try to give at every practice or game, and hope it inspires others. I just want to stay on this journey as long as I can, and college softball is the obvious path!
