I will be playing USTA 18u Opens and Sectionals. My goal is to qualify for the Bank of the West Classic by the end of my Junior year going into Senior year and then play again my Senior summer before college. (While staying NCAA eligibile)
I will also hopefully be playing in the 2019 Orange Bowl in Florida.
I have not played tournaments lately which is why my ranking is n/a but it will be back up very soon.

I want to be recruited because sports is my everything. It doesn't matter what sport I'm playing, I feel alive when I throw out a girl at second, or ace somebody in a tennis match, or hit the buzzer beater to send my team to overtime. I have a learning disability called ADHD it's very common, but I've always had hard times in class when I couldn't move around or do something. So, when I'm on the field or court I use all that energy and frustration and uncomfortablity that was stored up from school and channel that into my sport. Playing in college would be the step into making sports my profeassional career either in coaching, commentating, or playing.
On the field I have always been told that the catcher is the leader of the infield and that I have to be the calmest person on the field so that I can be able to lead the infield. I make sure that I know how to calm everyone of my teammates from the infield down so that we are all clearheaded and ready to play at our best.
Off the field I work during the summers as a counselor in training with kids at a summer camp in Lafayette, CA were I am able to be a mentor and counselor to kids from pre-school up to 6th grade. I am also trying to become a mentor for inner city student athletes who attend Caliber Charter School in my city of Richmond, CA were I will be talking with young student athletes who do not necessarily understand the importance of being a student and an athlete, making sure that they know how to properly schedule their time, and being somebody that they can talk to and also relate to.
I participate in going to the Alameda County Food Bank with my school. I do this because when I was a freshman and went for the first time the head man who worked there told my group about the amount of people who are in need for food in my area and the reality about how there are so many people who have to sacrifice going food shopping to keep the lights on in their homes or to even keep their homes.
