I have had an extreme love and passion for softball since the second I picked out my hot pink glove in Kindergarten. It has always been a critical part of my life and growth, impacting me on and off the field. Softball has implanted so many values into my life, and I would love to continue playing.
On the field, I have handled many different leadership tasks. Being a second basemen and also an outfielder, I have had to take charge in many situations. Whether our team needs to rally together and receive extra motivation, or just for reassurance, I become a leader to support the girls on my team. In order to succeed, we have to play together. I also play a role as a leader off the field in different community service experiences. One important trip happened the summer between my junior and senior year. I was granted the opportunity to take part in a mission trip that goes down to Guatemala to reach out to the community. Each day our team was given a new task to accomplish, each making us stronger and pushing us to continue the good work. I stepped into the leadership role as we worked in the community, handing out relief bags, serving in the food kitchen, building house structures, forming relationships with many, and more. I had to become a leader in order to help my group accomplish tasks in a certain amount of time and to provide my friendship and gifts with others.
I understand the difference in my priorities. To maintain a “healthy athletic performance,” I focus on not only my sports, but school. My long term goal is to be an orthodontist, and in order to achieve that I have to stay ahead in academics and work hard. I have been able to improve my grades each year, while playing two high school sports and on one travel softball team. A healthy athlete has their priorities straight, taking care of their academic performance, keeping their bodies in a healthy state, and thinking through their actions on and off the field.
Service has always been a value in my life. Since fourth grade, I’ve been apart of the Adopt-a-pet Organization located in Fenton, MI. Through my volunteering services to Adopt-a-pet, I have been able to transform the lives of dogs just as they have transformed mine. Getting to know each animal is like making a new friend. I learn their name, age, background, identity, etc. Their mental and physical well being become very important to me. The impact I have been able to make in the community is taking homeless, possibly sick dogs out of it and placing them in a happy and healthy environment until they can transition into a new and loving home. The opportunities are endless and I continue my work because of the impact the dogs have on me and how they inspire me to keep going, spreading my services into my Church and in other areas.
