From a very young age, I was involved in some sort of activity/sport. By the time I was 8, I was playing elite club soccer and swimming on an intense team that has produced multiple Olympic swimmers. By age 10, I had won the state title in soccer and was one of the top players in the state. My dad played Division 1 tennis at the University of Washington, so the competitive nature runs in the family.
Playing other sports has really taught me how to be a team player, something that junior golf doesn't focus on. Getting to be on teams such as the Washington Junior Golf Ladies CUP and the Utah Junior Team playing against Southern Nevada known as the "Border War" has given me a taste of what college golf would be like and being apart of a team. I also put extensive focus and hard work in my academics, with a 4.0 throughout middle school and high school, with honor role and taking multiple AP/IB classes.
In the midst of playing multiple sports, golf has always been the one that I have worked the hardest on and liked the most. It has also been a great way to bring my family together as an activity that we can all enjoy. My brother is going to play collegiate and is the c/o 2022, and seeing him go through the recruitment process has been super beneficial. I can't wait to start my own recruitment journey as class of 2023!
