I am open to a lot of different things. I know I want to go to a top 4-year college and figure out exactly what I want to do. I love history, so most likely something in the field of liberal arts or medicine. I also intend to play baseball in college, baseball is my great passion in life. I want to continue and grow my project over the years to come. I will play baseball as long as I have the opportunity to.
