Personal Statement


I’ve been playing volleyball for about a year now and to be perfectly honest it has had a profound impact on my life. I became interested in the sport from playing in middle school. I played two years in my 6th and 7th grades and watched some volleyball at the Olympic level. I had always wanted to play more competitively and play a game I enjoyed in a more thorough and shed new light on the sport. That’s about the time that I received a call from a friend. 

My friend Tucker sent my parents an email wanting me to go play volleyball with his team. I arrived at the first practice in awe of my teammates hitting, the movement on a float serve, the way the ball graces off the setter’s hands. I was mesmerized like I had found a new musical artist. I was in love with the sport. I started playing right side and learned rotation and how to pass and set and I was playing volleyball.

Through my first season, I absorbed unbelievable amounts of information. I went from playing right side, not serving, not being able to pass to playing outside getting 6 kills a set and playing 6 rotations. I learned that the more I get out there and play I progress more and more working toward a goal unforeseeable at this point. The more I play and absorb information the more versatile and the more mentally strong I become. What I’ve learned from playing for 303 is that team chemistry is everything. The power of good relationships with teammates and your coaches value 100:1 when it comes to talent. I also believe that if you approach your coach or setter and ask for feedback you get a little bit better every time. In a game of inches like volleyball every opportunity I’m given to get better I will take it because the little things matter.

Some goals I have for High School are I plan to progress at my current pace and take AP and IB classes my sophomore. I have been accepted to the IB diploma program at Littleton High School and plan to pursue this endeavor. I plan to continue taking honors and classes much above the standards of a freshman. In college, I plan to pursue a degree in possibly chemical engineering, music, or psychology. I plan to get a bachelor’s or a master's degree and possibly a minor in a foreign language. 

Some things that separate me from the pack are that I like to bring together my teammates with laughter and through jokes and outside of practice joking around and hangouts. Another thing that I strive to do is always see how I can improve. I am constantly striving to ask for feedback from coaches setters and look at a lot of previous films to find any small details I can improve. Among these, I am also a drummer and plan to join a college drumline and possibly a drum core. I plan to have a successful college career for your program and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.
