    To illustrate how I have overcome adversity is to imagine a young woman with a softball glove on one hand and Jesus Christ holding on to the other. Life has taught me to be benevolent towards others, as a whole we can overcome any obstacle as long as we rejoice and honor Jesus. Life will consist of challenges and obstacles but we must remain faithful. By allowing faith to be my guide through every obstacle I am equipped with the confidence to build towards my future goals. The ability to play softball and glorify God is probably one of the best strengths I have acquired. I’ve wanted to become a coach ever since I was a little girl, to allow myself to pass this strength to the next generation. My dream is to share the message that as long as you're playing for something bigger than yourself then you will always be a winner. I want to teach them integrity, work ethic and determination to achieve whatever goal you are presented with.Throughout my youth, I have went through various presentations of adversity often leaving me feeling as if I was not capable of achieving what was in mind. God’s word has taught me to have faith even when the path way may seem defeating.Through Gods word, I have reflected on my actions allowing myself to grow and continue to push forward. My faith has taught me how to love others for the greater good because you just never know what they are going through. Pushing through these adverse challenges, I have developed my own personal story. A story that will allow me to uniquely impact the future generation. I have wanted to share what others have shared with me and continue to contribute to the greater good. My desire is to teach people the true meaning of who Jesus really is and that without him we would fail every time. I was able to teach my family that through the hard times we will pray to jesus every time and that’s how we will face adversity and hardship in our lives, because of my faith and hope in Jesus me and my family will knock down battles we don’t talk about it. My faith and determination will never be lost, I will carry it with me daily and influence others to walk with Jesus. In my future, I will encourage others to challenge themselves relying on their faith to carry them through. When presented with obstacles I will make sure that others stay determined to reach their dreams. Sharing this knowledge with the future generation will allow them to focus on the good that arises from every obstacle. Life is difficult but as long as we continue to build on the positive things that arise, we will succeed every time.
