Explain what you enjoy most about your sport and athletics.
Playing sports throughout school has taught me so many lessons about leadership and relationships with people around me. What I enjoyed most was being able to share so many memories with my team and put effort into something I loved doing and seeing the results.
What is your most memorable athletic moment?
Having the best season of my high school career this softball season, finishing 18-3 and earning a league title with the best team and coaches ever!

My Dad inspires me most by coming to every game he can. Wanting to be successful not only for myself, but him, too, pushes me to get better to make him proud.
What are your greatest challenges balancing academics and sports?
Time management is the biggest challenge, and being able to get everything done by their deadlines!
What are your plans after graduating from high school?
I'm going to play soccer at Herkimer County Community College, and eventually transfer to a college in Florida to become an interior designer.
