Role model: "I consider my mom a role model. She has Sarcoid Disease and still wakes up each and everyday to go to work and help our family out. She is always here not only for my immediate family, but also our extended family. I think the fact that she overcomes her disease and is willing to help others, even if they do not help her, is amazing. Also she is personable and I can talk to her about anything."

Personal story: "At the beginning of my junior year I suffered a major knee injury. The doctor told me I probably would not be able to be a softball pitcher ever again. I had surgery to replace my completely torn ligament and I had six months of intense physical therapy. After six months I was able to begin playing softball again, but I had to be careful. Eight months after surgery I was able to start pitching again, and I was also scouted to play softball in college. Hard work and determination pays off."
