Softball is definitely in my family’s blood! My older sister Marina started out the line of softball players (4 years older than me). I was the next to try it out, and then my younger sister Melanie followed in our footsteps. We all played a lot of different sports, but we all continued and eventually all went to University for it in the United States.

Our CAN Fund #150Women mantra is being EPIC, what does EPIC mean to you?  
Being EPIC means a lot to me. It can apply to many people on the field, but it makes me take a step back and question how am I EPIC off the field? I love softball, and I think I am an epic competitor, but I want to be known for more than that! I want to use my platform for good and to inspire young women, and young diabetics that I was in their shoes one day, and it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, and/or what you’ve gone through, playing at the highest level is achievable.
