Recruit Profile
Passionate, disciplined, defensive leader committed to constant improvement. Commute 5 hours to train with MFL. AP student, Starting high school varsity goalie. 3 year volunteer with special needs children.

The lacrosse field is my home and where I am meant to be! I began playing lacrosse when I was 8. I became a defender before switching to the goal full time when I was 11. In 2019 I began driving 5 hours each way to play and train with Major Force Lacrosse because I am always looking for ways to improve my skills and become a better player and teammate. I have trained weekly with a private goalie coach for 4 years and I do speed, agility and strength training year-round. When I am free, I substitute as a goalie for other clubs in Michigan including Triumph Lacrosse. I believe that a goalie should have a very good relationship with the defense and their communication and teamwork is needed to help the team be successful. Some of my high school lacrosse achievements include:

*Israel Lacrosse Women's Team, Heritage Cup 2021
*High Intensity IPLL Training Bubble - Israel Lacrosse Training Center, Ashkelon, Israel. Dec.1-30, 2020
*Playing with Major Force '22 Black and '22 Blue as a '23 goalie, 2019-2020
*Starting Varsity goalie as a freshman, Forest Hills Central High School, 2020
*WPLL Futures-1st alternate for Goalies 9th-12th grade, 2019
*Brine All American National Lacrosse Classic 2019 - Team 2023 Midwest
*Israel Lacrosse National Development Team-2019 -FIL World Cup, Peterborough, Canada- Bronze Medal Winner, U-15 Division

School is a top priority for me along with lacrosse. I am currently taking Honors and AP classes at my high school. I made the high honor roll for fall and spring semester, and I am taking sign language and will have a certificate of fluency when I graduate.

Outside of school, I am very active with my synagogue youth group and volunteer corps. My favorite way to spend my free time is volunteering with children who have special needs for Comprehensive Therapy Center here in Grand Rapids. This helps me think from other's perspectives and figure out the best way to communicate with different types of people. This is why I am looking for a college that offers a bachelor's degree in Speech Pathology/Communication Science and Disorders.
