She states, “My experience in high school athletics have taught me more lessons than any lecture can describe, diagram can depict, or equation can solve. Although in the classroom, I have learned curriculum, it has been on the playing field that I have learned of my potential as a person and found my identity…… I have learned from my teammates, opponents and coaches that determination, drive and competitiveness and courage are all characteristics of a leader. Being an athlete means that you must always possess these leadership qualities because you are a role model not only for the next generation of athletes but for all those you encounter each day.”
