Next Level U Statement

I am looking to attend a 4 year collegiate institution, while I can continue my softball career and decide on a major directed toward the sciences. I have been playing softball as long as I can remember! It has always been something I have greatly enjoyed, but within these past few years I have really found a love for the sport and made the decision I want to continue with it post-secondary. I have been blessed with the opportunities to play with different teams and of which I have met some of my best friends. If I had to describe my personality, I would say I am a positive, uplifting team player who is always encouraging others. I am hard-working, and have the ability to play in many different positions on the field, but excel in pitching. I am an all around dedicated athlete that loves the game and is eager to continue to learn and take this sport with me on my journey.

Athletics

 I Absolutely love sports & anything that keeps me active. I appreciate any advice given and will always strive to do better. In previous years, I have competed in AA ringette out of London & Dorchester, ON. In my spare time I work to improve my existing skills and learn new ones.

I am going to hopefully be returning to ringette this year, and try to get engaged with school sports as well as they begin to open back up. My main focus and favourite sport I have played is softball, and I look to go somewhere with it in the near future.
