From the early age of 5, I was interested in playing soccer and participated in the sport for the next three years. There was a huge influence on me to try and play softball as my mom and older sisters played when they were younger. I was introduced to softball when I was nine years old and had no interest in playing the game. I had refused to even go to a tryout/practice to even see what the hype was all about. After the first practice, I was hooked. I have played competitive ball for the past 8 years and still have a passion and love for the game. Any chance that I have to get on the field and play makes me feel in my element. I have experience on the field at 2nd base, shortstop, and outfield. I am always open to a challenge and will work hard for my team. This year I ventured out of my comfort zone and went out for indoor track to keep in shape for the upcoming season of softball. To my surprise I really enjoy it and now I get to work on playing an individual sport. Over the last seven years playing softball has taught me accountability, respect, and leadership. My academic goals for high school and college are to graduate with honors, strive to be a successful student in the classroom each day, and take challenging courses. To become the successful athlete I am today, I not only had to work hard in the classroom but I had and still have to spend an endless amount of hours in the gym and on the field day in and day out. As an athlete, you have to be in shape and dedicated to the sport to not only become a better teammate but a better player. Some of my characteristics are being committed, positive mindset, and being competitive.
My hobbies outside of softball are hanging out with my friends, fishing, and spending time at the lake as well as taking care of my dog Marlee.
My family is a big part of my life so I spend most of my time with them outside of sports.
