Softball has taught me many important lessons including the meaning of commitment, the need to put the team before oneself, how to lead by example and the importance of giving everything you have in striving to achieve a goal. It has also taught me to always seek self-improvement and learn new skills and information.
My academic goal is to prepare for a successful career in Business and Marketing Communications. I am working hard to achieve good grades in a curriculum complying with NCAA eligibility standards. My athletic goal is to continue my development and performance as a varsity corner infielder and outfielder in high school and on club teams in order to earn a college player commitment.
I have loved softball for my whole life, and the opportunity to play in college is a blessing and privilege to continue playing at a competitive level beyond high school. It is the chance to develop close, lifelong relationships with others by being part of a team. It is also the chance to continue maintaining strength and conditioning with a healthy lifestyle and disciplined routine. Also, it supports the ability to develop great professional career skills through time management, leadership, competitive thinking and effective communication within a team.
While striving to be a good student and athlete, I also aspire to be a good citizen who gives back to others. In particular, my community work as a volunteer Player Buddy with the Miracle League of Massachusetts enables me to help those with disabilities enjoy the fun and excitement of achieving success on the ball field. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing someone with physical challenges smile after they hit the ball and cross home plate with a crowd cheering them on.
I pursue healthy athletic performance through striving for personal excellence in my sport which includes a commitment to natural strength and conditioning development. I also maintain a life balance between athletics and academics because success in my studies is even more important for the long term.
