Golf is an integral part of my life, and I am working to make it an integral part of my college experience. The golf course has always been a beautiful place to create indispensable memories and everlasting relationships while pursuing athletic excellence. For example, I went on a father-daughter trip to Bandon Dunes when I was thirteen, where my dad and I played out a round in the pouring rain and driving wind at sub-40-degree temperatures! Also, I met my best friend at a local LPGA Girls Golf Clinic. From that point, we have been inseparable, helping each other through the difficulties that are part of the game that we both love. Golf has taught me how to focus on the moment at hand and how to learn from but not dwell in the past.
I am an academically motivated and community-oriented student at the John Cooper School. My course load includes NCAA eligible classes such as World History 1, Language and Literature Foundations 1, Advanced Geometry, Biology, French 1, Art 1, and Advanced Spanish 2. I love helping others as a student tutor through the Peer-Assisted Learning System and as a peer liaison for incoming and prospective students for the Student-to-Student program. In college, I plan to pursue an undergraduate business degree with a minor in international business while playing collegiate golf. I love learning foreign languages and am currently studying French and Spanish in school and German and Italian on my own for further enrichment. My goal is to combine my passion for golf and foreign language with a successful business career.
When I am not playing golf, I volunteer and write. I also run varsity cross country for my high school to stay physically fit. On and off the golf course, my personality is calm, independent, and competitive. I am also fantastic at time management, making my work efficient and decisive. I tend to accept challenges and assume authority. I also have strong interpersonal skills, so I am friendly, a good communicator, and empathetic, which is why I am a good teammate.
