What does it mean for you to represent the United States in softball? Having the opportunity to represent the United States is something that is very special. I’m blessed just to even play, but the fact that I can represent my country in this support is something that I am beyond thankful for.
What do you enjoy most about playing? The challenge and intensity. Softball is a game of failure and that is what makes it so competitive and exciting.
Who are your role models in the game? Kayla Braud (Senior at Alabama)
