Personal Statement

I am 14 years old, starting my Freshman year of high school and have been playing golf since I was 5 years old.  I would love to play collegiate golf and compete for an NCAA Division I Title.  I believe that playing golf at the collegiate level will not only help me to obtain my academic goals but help me achieve my dream of playing on the LPGA tour.  I believe it is important to set goals and work hard to obtain them.

I am a team leader and always lead by example.  I am very coachable and willing to go above and beyond what it takes to play golf at the collegiate level.  I am motivated, self-disciplined and always have a positive attitude on and off the golf course.  I am confident that any collegiate golf coach will be happy to have me represent them, their university and their team.

I also love singing and dancing.  I have studied ballet, jazz, hip-hop and lyrical dance since I was three years old. I was member of the Senior Xite Competition Dance Team at Davis Dance Academy until June 2015.  I am currently taking ballet and lyrical dance and have stopped dance competitions because of the conflicts with my golf tournament schedule.

I am an excellent student with a 3.8 GPA.  I love creative writing, reading and art.  I am an A Honor Roll student and a member of the National Junior Honor Society.  I previously attended Utah Virtual Academy for three years prior to 8th grade, which allowed me to participate in many regional and national golf tournaments throughout the United States. I am currently enrolled at Kaysville Junior High School as an 9th grader and enjoying the opportunities that I did not have with the online school program. This year I will try out for the Davis High School Girls Golf Team and hope to play the lead spot on the Varsity Team as a Freshman.  My goal is to win a 5A State High School Championship.

I will continue to work on my golf game and maintaining my 3.8 GPA.  I know these two things are very important if I want to play golf at the collegiate level.  At this point I have not decided what I want to study in college but I know that I want to continue to make my parents proud of my academic and athletic accomplishments.
