Personal Statement

Sports have always been a part of my life. My parents have supported any activity my brothers and I have wanted to pursue. Before entering high school, I did have to make a decision that would define my goals for my future. I was a pitcher and catcher in baseball and I was a defensive specialist for volleyball and I had to choose which sport I would play in high school, since they were both during the same season; I went with my love for the game and chose volleyball. 

My freshman year I grew a few inches and became a setter and opposite hitter for the JV team. As a sophomore, I made the varsity team and was elated. This was a challenging year for me because I was no longer a starter and saw the game from the bench more often than I would have liked. My teammates and my family showed me how to still be an important, motivating member of the team no matter my role.

Instead of giving up and keeping my head down, I sat down with my family and asked them to continue to send me to college camps during off-season and to allow me to tryout for club volleyball. I did this because I wish to play at the college level. I was determined to put in all the hard work to improve my skills. During this first year of club, I developed into an outside hitter and all around player. I continue to improve upon my setting technique because I know that my high school needs me to fill that position once our season begins again. I truly understand the importance of playing in the position that the team needs and being the best I can be. 

As team captain, I motivate, push, and support my teammates. I have learned how to be a leader on and off the court. Academics are very important to me. I am a straight A student and I am a member of VICA ( pre-med club). I would like to pursue a career in medicine. I plan to earn a degree in biology or pre-med and then attend medical school.
