Sports have been a huge part of my life. It feels like it's a part of who I am and I refuse to believe that it will end after high school. I'm excited for college and getting to learn and decide what the next step of my career will be. Playing softball in college would allow me to continue to do what I love.
On the field, I am usually one of the loudest when cheering on my teammates. I think energy and attitude can make or break the game. If someone makes a mistake, I'm the first to try and get their head up again.
Off the field, I was chosen as Leader of the Month by my teachers because I go out of my way to try and help others when they're struggling. If there's someone being bullied or pushed to the outside, I'll include them or go and talk to them.
Being a healthy athlete takes a lot of work and maintenance. I'm careful about what I eat, especially before and in between games. I also try hard to avoid injuries by icing, stretching, massaging, using a roller and having monthly visits with an athletic trainer.
I volunteer with TASK (Team Activities for Special Kids), Challenger Baseball, and Special Olympics. These events are so important to me because I have a step-sister with Autism and I believe that not only does it teach them social skills and how to work as a team but it also allows them to feel pride, joy, and self-satisfaction when they participate in athletic activities.
