I had always wanted to play tennis since I was a little girl, but unfortunately, it was too expensive for my family to afford in Tyler. When we moved to Franklin the summer before my fourth grade year, my mom saw an advertisement for Gordon's Tennis, ten dollars a lesson. My parents decided that I could go to a few lessons to see if I liked it and it was in those first few lessons that I fell in love with the sport. Since those lessons, my life has changed dramatically. I had found the sport that I wanted to make my lifestyle.
I'm different from a lot of the players that I face in competition. Since my family doesn't have the same amount of money that most of my competitors do, I have learned that I have to work for almost any and everything that I want to be a part of my life. Because of this, it is very important to my family and me that I get as much of my college paid for by scholarship as possible, whether academic or athletic. I live forty-five minutes away from the place that I train which makes me a very dedicated athlete that will never give up. I am also a very coach-able player. I am receptive to any advice that is offered to me. I'm a friendly, Christian young woman whose love for other people is just as much as my love for the game. One of the only things that matters more to me than my athletic pursuits is my education. I am very proactive when it comes to my grades. I already miss a lot of school due to my individual and school tennis endeavors. I always make sure that I have my work done to the best of my ability and turned in on time. I would be a great asset to your team because of my dedication to the sport, my ability to be easily coached, my love towards others and the sport, and my determination in the classroom.
