When did you start playing golf? How did you get involved?

I was introduced to golf at a very young age because my parents already loved the sport, but I once I started playing competitively, I began to focus solely on golf. 

What do you love most about golf?

The part about golf that I love most is the life skills that it teaches me. I learned to stay calm and problem solve in the face of pressure, and that perseverance and determination helps you achieve your goals. 

Special shoutout to Megan who’s determination has culminated in her recent acceptance to attend college at Stanford University.

Why is it important to have Girls Golf of San Fernando Valley?

It is important to have these programs because it offers opportunities for young girls to learn about and become interested in the sport. 

What is your favorite memory from Girls Golf of San Fernando Valley?My favorite memories (so far) are how I’ve made many friends and was able to help young girls get the ball up in the air!

What would you say to other girls about playing golf?

Some of my favorite memories are on the golf course, and it can become one of your family’s favorite group activities as well. This is a sport that you will be able to play for the rest of your life, and you will make lifelong friends.
