Marlo Zamora: First Tee – Greater San Antonio Eagle Participant

Hi! My name is Marlo Zamora. I’m a Junior at Smithson Valley high school. I’m 16 years old and currently an Eagle participant in the program at the First Tee – Greater San Antonio. You will usually find me on the golf course. I also compete in numerous STPGA, Prestige, and TJGT, as well as high school tournaments. Golf has been a big part of my life since I was in first grade and has taught ME many life lessons. Outside of golf I really love competing in cross country races as well mini triathlons. I am also very involved in being an advocate in LGBTQIA+, racial equity, and women’s rights.

Over 8 years ago my mom took me to First Tee, little did I know it would change my life forever. The First Tee brought me a new love and competitiveness for golf as well as life long friends. This program has put many powerful and successful female role models in my life, showing me I can be and do whatever I put my mind to. It is my ambition of mine to get accepted into a D1 college for golf; through all the opportunities this program has given me has put me a few steps closer to my goal and I believe they will continue to do so.
