From the age of five years old I was confident that I had found the sport I inherently loved. My passion for the sport continued to grow and has served as a positive drive within me throughout many other aspects of my life; academics, athletics, and extracurricular activities. Simultaneously, the game itself assisted in my development as a well rounded person. I welcome challenges, work productively and cooperatively as a team player, am analytical when faced with situations, and can derive solutions accordingly. These attributes, which I encompass, have led me to become an effective leader both on and off the field. Being a student-athlete for the majority of my life has enabled me to develop excellent time management skills, persistence in seeing all tasks through to completion, and a very strong work ethic. The coaches' constructive criticism has led me to the realization that with open and honest feedback and guidance, every individual becomes the best they can possibly be; with this I have chosen to give back to others, by volunteering in various capacities, in order to help others achieve their own successes. Overall, my collegiate plan is to find a university and team where I will be a good fit both on and off the field. A place where my assets will be utilized effectively. My dream team will be a group that will become known as "My Family".
