I aspire to be a student-athlete reaching the highest levels of both academics and athletics. I am inspired by both my parents who received advanced degrees in college and have instilled in me the qualities of work ethic, passion and determination. I believe I am a good candidate because I am willing to work within the framework of the team while developing my skills that will enhance the team. My goal is to become better and I am more than willing to be coached, to listen and to learn. I have the ability to inspire others and to lead, which is evident by me being elected as class president, an office holder in the National Honor Society and being voted by my teammates as team captain on both my volleyball and track and field teams. My desire is to find a team and university where I can grow and develop as a person, student and leader while contributing to the team and university.
