I have been a part of an athletic team for the majority of my life, probably since I was 6 or 7. I honestly had dreamed & hoped I would play college basketball most of my life. Being 6 feet tall now and typically the tallest of my classmates it seemed as if it was assumed that I play basketball. When I look back however, golf is probably the sport I played first. I was born in Arizona right after my family moved there so my Dad could work at Ping. I always had a club in my hand. I didn’t really consider playing competitively until recently as golf was something my family and I did for fun. I have realized I can compete at golf and have fun. I think playing golf at the college level would give me so many emotional, physical and even social benefits.
In addition to leading in the classroom, specifically as mentioned above, I have assisted coaching my younger sister’s volleyball and basketball teams. This past golf season, I was also a team captain. I developed a big/lil sister program for our team which really boosted team bonding and was a lot of fun. My golf coach plans on keeping this as part of the girls’ golf program for as long as she is the head coach for Avon Lake High School.
My parents have always encouraged me to play multiple sports which I feel has helped me both physically and emotionally be a healthy athlete. I also try to be aware of what I’m eating and I definitely drink a ton of water.
I assist in the special education classroom 2x/week helping kids with a variety of disabilities. I really enjoy working with the students in the inclusion room for so many reasons. First of all, being able to provide an extra set of hands enables the primary teachers and therapists to provide more one on one support to individual students. I have fun while helping and am able to provide typical social interactions for these students. In a way, I feel like it’s my way of thanking the special education program/staff for their hard work and dedication. My older brother is autistic and was in the classroom I help out in so being able to give back is very rewarding.
