After searching for the right college, Brookelle Holby has found one that incorporates all of her interests.
At Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio, Holby will be able to keep playing softball while pursuing a degree in horse therapy, which involves helping people through mental health issues with the compassion and patience of horses.
Along with horse riding, Holby has played softball for most of her life.
“I’ve been playing ball since I was like four.” Holby said. “I’ve been playing travel for eight years.”
Throughout her sports career, Holby has stayed focused and motivated.
“Motivation-wise, it was always just because I liked playing.” Holby said. “And I loved the girls. I was playing with the same group of girls for like five years.”
None of her teammates are accompanying her to Lake Erie, but she’s ready for college and new connections. “I did want to play in college the whole time. I knew that young.” Holby said.
Further, Holby has found the campus and college experience that are right for her.
“I love that campus.” Holby said. “It felt like home.”
