Through playing sports for 10 years, I have come strides to being the best version of myself. I have had many triumphs and learning experiences. I have come a long way in my athletic career, from playing flag football as soon as I could hold a football in my hand, to never getting a basketball out of them. I have most importantly become a stronger woman in the society we live in today. As being a female athlete, I have had to hold my head high and show my abilities no matter my gender. For example, being the only girl on a flag football team and being their quarterback. This experience allowed me to get out of my comfort zone and showcase what I can do. Most importantly, support the women athletes around me. With the experiences I’ve had in the sports I’ve participated in, it has allowed me to have a leadership mentality and to always push through and not let a brick wall stop me from achieving what I want. This has carried onto my high school basketball career.
