Hello, my name is Julia Dapron, and I am currently 17 years old and I have been playing golf since I was four years old. For a long time, golf was a way for me to spend time with my parents, and I learned to love the sport for that. When I was 14 something clicked and I decided I wanted to go further with my golfing career; I want to play college golf. Ever since then, that has been my goal. Considering I live in Vermont, there isn't a lot of girls playing golf and the competition is limited, so I have been playing against the boys in many of my high school tournaments. I have also spent the summer playing in NEJRPGA events and Hurricane Junior Tour events. This has taught me to get along with everyone and helped me show people that I can keep up with anyone even some boys. I have played a lot of sports including soccer, tennis, alpine skiing, hockey, surfing, and lacrosse, but I always fall back to golf. Golf is one of those sports that challenges me, and I love a good challenge. It never ceases to amaze me all the variables in golf. You get one thing figured out and there are 20 more things for you to improve on. It is a never-ending battle, and I love that because it makes me put everything I have into the game. It challenges me because I have to balance school, friends, family, and sports. I always try my best, and I always try to stay positive, through a hard hole and a bad round. Golf has given me the opportunity to meet amazing people, go to fantastic places, and with that I have become a better person. I hope I get the opportunity to continue this amazing golfing experience in college playing for you.
