My sports career has given me the skills I need to succeed in life. Over time I have become a leader, an eleven-time Honor roll student, and developed time management skills. Being a leader is a strength of mine. I have been a captain for many teams and a USA Hockey Student coach for 8U and 10U girls. Being a student-athlete, time management is very important to me. I can prioritize efficiently and make sure that my school work is complete before I can compete. I’m also actively involved in the community as a member of the Cheshire Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary and Cheshire Food Pantry.
My dream is to play lacrosse at a college level and study math, sciences, or engineering. I would like to be a civil, mechanical, environmental or geomechanics engineer. An ideal college supports the majors I’m looking for and has a strong lacrosse program.
I have had to work very hard to get where I am today. My community doesn’t have any club lacrosse teams so I have to drive two hours to every practice with Lax Plus. But I must say that it’s all worth it. Another obstacle is the level of competitiveness where I live. Very few play club lacrosse and aim to play in college. Therefore, I stand out in my community becoming a competitive lacrosse player, a leader, an overachiever, and a great student.
