Personal Statement

The best way to describe me as a student, an athlete, and a person is determined. I set my goals and never stop until I achieve them. I am incredibly hardworking both on and off the court. I am a strong athlete in both mind and body. Playing sports from a young age has taught me to be a fierce competitor in all aspects of my life. In basketball, I score in a variety of ways. Playing as a shooting guard, small forward, and occasionally as point guard as taught me versatility. Even with my smaller frame, I can finish at the basket and am a strong rebounder. Academics are also very important to me. I believe that being a student athlete in college will enhance my ability to focus on my future goals. My goal is to build a strong academic foundation for my future career in either genetics or physical therapy while playing the sport I love at the next level.

Basketball is not the only sport I play, although it is my passion. I run cross country and track and play tennis as well. I am proud to say that I am well rounded and am not only an athlete but am also a musician and scholar as well. I am very involved in my school community, participating in STEM club, Public Address Club, Spanish Club, Band, and Tri-M Music Honors Society. During my summers, I play trumpet in the Arion Community Band which performs concerts throughout the summer for veteran’s events as well as concerts for local events and several nursing homes in the area. I also play trumpet at the weekend masses at my church. I’m a student assistant at the YMCA where I help coach/referee the youth basketball winter program as well as summer basketball camps.

My freshman year, I was named the Cumberland Times News Scholar Athlete of the month twice. I was named to the All Tournament team at the St Maria Goretti Lady Gael Classic and the Calvary Christian Academy Christmas Classic during both my freshman and sophomore years. I was given the “Girl who wouldn’t quit award” for the Bishop Walsh girls invitational tournament my freshman year and also finished third in the foul shooting competition. The GIT tournament hosts teams such as Riverdale Baptist and St. Francis Academy. I was named MVP in one game at both the PA hoops Big 60 Elite College showcase and the PA Hoops Cream of the Crop , both in summer 2017. I placed in the top ten in each cross country meet my sophomore year and was named to the SSMAC All Conference team. My academic honors include Principal’s honors during every marking period throughout middle school and high school (currently a 4.2 GPA). I was also given the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership Award for Maryland High School students and will be attending the Maryland HOBY conference in May 2018.
