Growing up I watched A LOT of college softball. My mom got sick when I was about 5 and around that time she got sick softball signups came out. My parents thought it would be good for me. Growing up with a sick parent was pretty hard for me. Softball was my outlet. The second I stepped onto that field everything else going on in my life seemed to just disappear. Softball had taught me so much over the years. One big lesson that It taught me was that you can always do better. Yes we might have won the game in the last inning but what could we of done to make it not so close. This was not just a lesson I used on the field though I used it in school as well. If I get an 90% on a paper I think after I get it back what could I of done to get the 100%. Playing this sport in college has been a dream of mine for 11 years and I just think it would be amazing if I could play the sport that got me through so much growing up in college, and one day I hope one little girl sees me on the TV and says to her self “I want to be like her when I grow up” just as I did.
I am currently part of a venture crew in Weymouth MA. I am also a girl scout in Rockland MA. I help guide the younger girls to get the awards they can in girl scouting. I have earned my bronze,silver, and am currently working on my gold award. I am 16 years old and the oldest Girl Scout in Rockland. All throughout my years of playing travel ball and town I was always elected captain. My positive attitude towards everything life throws at me makes me stand out from a lot of other people. If we mess up on a play I make sure we shake it off and get the next one. If we get slaughtered I make sure when we line up at home plate to congratulate the other team with our heads are up. I never wanted to be the boss i never wanted the power or for the girls to think I was “higher than them” we are a team and we are all equal.
I help lead a Cub Scout pack in my town with over 50 boys enrolled in it . In this pack we have multiple dens. I mostly help out with the younger boys keeping them controlled and mostly quiet and content while the older boys get work done. I do crafts with them I read to them and we even go on field trips. Over the summer I also run a week long summer camp for all the siblings of the boy scouts at troop 19 summer camp out. Another thing I am involved in is I am a senior DARE officer. Growing up I went to DARE camp myself and I wanted to make the difference in other kids lives just like the officers did to me. This is something that is really important to me because I think if we teach then not to do drugs in a more fun way than sitting them down and telling them not to be apart of that it is more effective. In the 5 years I have been doing this it has taught me so much and I hope one day to be able to help every kid out there as well.
