FAMILY IS EVERYTHING!!
So I don’t know if you can tell, already but I am very big on family, I am the oldest of five so I always had a mini-crew beside me. (Younger-twin-sister and three younger brothers) I enjoy their company and we just have tons of fun being together. I have a bond with my mother like no other, seriously she is my second best friend besides my twin. Then there is my brothers; they keep me active and on my toes at all times. Being the oldest comes with many challenges, but I embrace them and love being the oldest. Outside of my relative family I have a large Tennessee family as well, even after graduating, they can continue to show me love and support me in my endeavors. Now my Tennessee family consist of my teammates (which I call my sisters now) all of my coaches, staff, and the incredible fans/supporters. The Lady-Vol experience in my opinion for me was incredible, I received so much love and support from these people that they became my extended family throughout college. They would always invite us over for dinner, or take us out, as well as a bunch of summer events that they introduced me to like tubing in the lake! So when I say Lady-Vol for life #VFL I truly mean it. Then there’s my friends from back home, meaning those who I grew up with throughout grammar school and high-school as well as my coaches. With them its the same, I have made memories that will last a lifetime and even though some I haven’t seen in awhile, when we connect, it’s like we never left! Now being able to add to my already distinctive family bunch with the #Sportschangeslife family, I couldn’t be more excited and honored! There is a saying that” it takes a village to raise a child,” which basically means a lot of people put in the work to make one outstanding human being. For me my foundation has been my family, they are the reason I am the way I am today, because of how I was raised. With all the new faces form Sportchangeslife that I will meet, I am sure to become an even better person, I definitely will grow as a person because of this experience! Stay tuned to hear more about my journey Ireland!
