I first started playing volleyball during a family vacation. Since that moment volleyball has been a major part of my life. Volleyball has taught me many attributes such as leadership skills, discipline, diligence, team-work, etc. Being a three-time captain I have learned (am still learning) what it takes to encourage and lead a team. The highlights of my volleyball career so far are attending the USAV BJNC, in the open division, for five consecutive years (2015-2019) and placing third (open division, U14) at the USAV Beach Junior National Championships in 2015. Unfortunately, my high school does not offer boys volleyball however, I remain involved year-round through beach volleyball, my indoor club team, participating in multiple school and club open gyms, clinics/camps, private coaching and hold the position of team manager for two high school teams (the girl's high school volleyball team at my school and the men's high school team at a neighboring high school). My athletic goals during my academic years, are to compete in many more high level indoor and beach volleyball tournaments, constantly work to improve my skills and play on a college team.
My goals academically are to graduate high school with a 3.7+ GPA and maintain above a 3.5 GPA in college. My senior year of high school will be all/mostly dual enrollment classes from which I hope to earn twenty or more college credits. Although I am undecided as to what major I'd like to pursue in college, I am strongly considering Sports Management. Performing well in school is always a priority just above volleyball. I'd like to receive more academic awards/achievements throughout my high school career.
Next to volleyball, I enjoy participating in school activities such as French club, sporting events, school dances and look forward to upcoming Art Showcases, and more. Outside of school, I enjoy being with my friends, movies, swimming, and more volleyball. For the past year and a half, I have also worked as a host at a local restaurant.
