My first experience with true responsibilities and leadership was becoming the captain of my division 1 college, women's tennis team. I have been a student athlete since I was old enough to hold a racquet in my hand. Being given the responsibility to lead my teammates and make sure we were conference championship ready was a big role to take on.
In having this role, I had to learn how to communicate with my teammates and understand their individuals needs. This lead my interest in being a communications major and hospitality minor. I hope to contribute my experience as a captain into my field of work and make an impact on those around me.
