As a young woman who loves the sport, my goal is to be able to compete for a college team. From the first time I picked up a pole I knew that this is what I wanted to do. Not only has this sport taught me how to fly high, it has taught me that no matter what, anything is possible. My main focus is to always find an opportunity to better myself. Any practice time I can get is a great opportunity for me to gain strength. Not only do I believe that putting work into my sport is important, I also believe that working hard in the classroom is a major component as well. Balancing sports and academics could be stressful, but with the right mindset anything can be accomplished.
