Karah’s Introduction:
I am a responsible, determined young lady with a positive attitude. My other great attributes are my sense of humour and ability to get along with everyone. I have recently been assisting our younger softballers at our local club and enjoy this very much. I believe I will bring to your program, versatility, persistence, great sportsmanship and my strong desire to be the best for myself and the team.

Biggest Goals so far:
My most significant achievement to date was my selection to play Softball for Australia in Japan in 2018. I have also travelled to the US in 2017 to play for a Firecrackers team.

Why do you want to compete at College in the USA?
I am hoping to be accepted into the US college system where I can continue to follow my dreams of playing softball, whilst obtaining further education, seeing the world and making new friends.

What makes you different?
My willingness to compete to win a softball game. Don’t let my bubbly personality fool you 😉
