We got that Power!!! Its been real Normal, IL!!

Power 3rd place at Nationals

3rd place at Nationals!!!! My team is called Florida Power Black Kaser. We finished 3rd out of 124 teams at ASA Nationals!! We flew to Normal, Il, which felt like 300 hours. We stayed in the winners brackets all the way till the semi final game. We did not just play softball, we partied too!! After are games we played volleyball, and had a cookout. We kept winning, so we went go carting. My teammate jumped form boat to boat in bumper boat. She got us kicked out of the bumper boats, but it was worth the laugh. Nationals was not just softball, it was with the people you were with and the events. Fireworks finished the opening ceremony. Nationals was one of the best trip I have ever been on!! This helped form my brand to what it is today!

Artifact Project

This artifact was passed down to my sister and I. This quilt was made by my 96 years old great grandma. She just passed away last year, and we miss her so much. She was a type of person who loved to sew. She sewed a quilt for my sister and I. This quilt had cartoons characters on the front since we were little. On the back of the quilt it said, “bundle of love” with stars and moons. The stars and moons were an example of going to bed at night. The words meant she loves us and never forget that when we are sleeping. This quilt means a lot to me because she sewed it herself just for us. She also made lots of shirts for herself, but she always wore them.  I wish she was still her today, but I know she knows we all love her, and miss her tons.

Life Tracks

We Are Family - Sister Sledge
I choose this song because I am very close to my family. Family means the world to me. We are family means that all of us brother, sisters, dad, mom, grandparents, and teammates. We all love each other, and are one big happy family.

We Own It - 2 Chainz and Wiz Khalifa
I choose this song because this describes the sport I play. In the song it talks about playing softball. “One shot, everything rides on 2 night, even if I got 3 strikes I'm gonna go for it this moment we own it.” This is saying if you have 3 strikes still go for it, and keep fighting as a team. It also wants you to own the moment not skip the moment. This really relates to sports even softball. This is also one of my teams warm up songs.

We Can’t Stop - Miley Cyrus
I choose this song because my team and I play softball almost everyday. We can not stop playing because we love the game. This song is describing that they won't stop they will do whatever they want to. My team can't stop and we do whatever we want to do in games. If we want to win we can win, if we don't want to win we won't win. This song also relates to my team.

We Are Young - Kelly Clarkson
I choose this song because I love being young. I am still in my childhood and very young. My team is also young, and we can do a lot more things when we are young. We set the bar high and strive for whatever we think we can reach. I love being young and wish I was young forever!!

Take Me Out To The Ballgame - Jack Norworth
I choose this song because I play softball. They play this song during softball games. This relates to me because when I play my sport this song is played.  Also this is about a softball game, and that is what I play. This is why I choose this song.

Another One Bites The Dust - Queen
I choose this song because in nationals we rammed through all the teams. Another team bites the dust when they played my team. We chopped one team down at a time and again another one bites the dust. This is why I choose that song.

We Are The Champion - Queen
I choose this song because we were state champions last year. We also came in 3rd at nationals.  We were the champion last year, so this sng ties in with my team. That is why I choose we are the champion.

Stay Strong - Michael Stagliano
I choose this song because I love the saying stay strong. I tell everybody to stay strong, even my teammates. I think this is part of the mental side of the game. You have to believe in yourself to succeed. Stay Strong is a key factor in my life.  

#That Power - William and Justin Bieber
I choose this song because this is my teams song. My teams name is Power. In this song it says we got that power. My team has a lot of power. This is also my teams walk ups song, and party song. This is why I choose this song.

Brand Statement

I am a striver. I am lively and enthusiastic with infectious energy. I have lots of positive spirit and that energy is something that my friends value and admire. My life is dedicated to family and sports.  I have two families. I have my blood related family, and I have my softball family. I love both of them a lot. I pitch for Power 98. I spend extra time to improve my skills by conditioning, practicing, and formal lessons. Off the field I am a daughter to my mom and dad. My mom, dad, sister, and grandparents mean the world to me. I am a older sister to Ashley. I love them and would do anything for them. I have several tournaments during the summer. In the summer of 2013, our team placed third at Nationals. I am also a huge Florida Gator fan. “It is my goal to pitch for my dream school, University of Florida.”  Football is my hobby; I watch it on Saturday and Sundays with my family, and I also play fantasy football. I love all of the things I do!

“When people said I couldn’t, I did. And I will.”
-Tim Tebow

This quote particularly stood out to me because you keeping going even if people say you can't. I picked this quote because I was the third best pitcher in the country last year. My teammate told me that somebody said that I would not be as good as I was last year! He told them I couldn’t, and I did do good last year and I will this year.

“Believe it, the mind can achieve it.”
-Ronnie Lott

This quote particularly stood out to me because I love mental quotes. I always say “yes you can” if your mind think you can then more then likely you will succeed. I always tell my teammates to believe in themselves. 90% of most sports is mental. Your mind controls what you do. So just remember mind over matter, and trust yourself.

“A trophy carries dust. Memories last forever.”
-Mary Lou Retton

This quote particularly stood out to me because on this summer. This summer my amazing team came in 3rd at Nationals out of 124 teams. We ended up with a plaque at the end, but that plaque does not really matter to me. What matters was the people who I was with. When we were in nationals we went go karting, bumper boats, and lots more. Even though we were close to winning, I had a awesome summer with my team.

Logo and Reflection

My logo is saying stay strong! My thing in life is that I want everybody to stay strong and never give up. I also play sports, so I made a sentence about sports with stay strong in it. The first letters of the words in the sentence, spell out stay strong. I also like training hard because I know it will pay off. They yellow is very energetic, and the green means stay relaxed. This is what my logo means!!
