Thank you most sincerely for the incredible, extremely humbling experience of viewing my profile. I am deeply, eternally grateful for the valuable time and once in a lifetime opportunity of consideration from a professional softball team. I consider it unbelievably humbling and a phenomenal privilege to devote my life to playing the amazing game of fastpitch softball, especially having the tremendous honor of being on both Hofstra University (NCAA Division I) and Lucerne Eagles professional rosters.
Ever since I was very young, I consistently gained the reputation of being the hardest working, most passionate, enthusiastic, dedicated member of elite travel and school teams. Every day before school, before even the crack of dawn, I would give 150% effort and passion to agility, conditioning, strength training, and softball drills, coming home and practice for hours and hours until after the sunset. All because I had a lifelong dream of becoming a professional softball player, I never took a day off, giving my blood, sweat, and tears to softball training, no matter how many degrees below zero the New York winter temperatures were or how many hours that day I had already practiced in our family’s converted garage practice space.
I have been extraordinary blessed to be a part of one of the top NCAA Division I softball programs, Hofstra University in the United States. In fact, our team was only one game away for making the Division I College World Series, competing at the most elite levels of NCAA Tournament! I am forever grateful to the Lucerne Eagles professional softball team in Switzerland for adding me to their roster this past season, though I unfortunately became injured (but am recovering back to one hundred percent)! I bring to all my teams the reputation of being the hardest working, most passionate, dedicated player and being an exceptional teammate, giving all of my heart and soul to cheering my teammates on and sacrificing anything I can to help my teams. For the opportunity to see my dream come true as a professional softball player, I will be devoted and active to the organization for life, including high enthusiasm and great interest for becoming a substantial donor to the club I am blessed to be part of. Recognizing the remarkable difficulty in competing at the softball professional level, I am also delighted to be a professional team member on a voluntary basis, covering all my own costs, such as flight, uniform, equipment, living expenses, food, travel, etc. Thank you most sincerely for your time and attention to my profile, and I am extremely excited and thankful to hear from your club!
