Personally, I practice softball at high level since 2009. I left my family to enter at the training center, around 900km between them and me. Currently I’m not in boarding school anymore, I have my own apartment, near the training center. So, that’s a sacrifice, if I want to play at the highest level. An other one I made is about my studies: I didn’t go to the university, I studied my Degree in law by e-learning, and I just went to the university to pass my tests. Today I study the photography by the same way. That’s pretty convenient, I can practice everyday, and I study when I have a moment. But it’s also hard to work by myself. Some of the softball players in the training center do the same thing, when they finish high school.
