I have a huge passion for volleyball and strive to get better during and after each and every practice. Since my very first time on the court I knew, unlike any other sport I have ever played, that I wanted to attend a college to where not only I could start my journey towards a career in medicine but play volleyball at a higher level. I play both for my high school team as well as a elite travel team during off season. I am and have always been a very hardworking person both on the court and off. I constantly find myself setting new goals and challenging myself with new activities and striving to work on things I know still needs improvement to become the best player I possibly canbe. I strive to always put 100% in everything that I do and encourage my team mates to do the same. No matter what is going on with life I make sure that my focus is always on the game at hand. When playing on the volleyball court I understand the importance of each player and each position as they play a key role in our teams’ success. Coaches in the past has instilled in me how important communication is when playing a team sport because it doesn’t only help carry out each play but it encourages all team members to work together for a common goal. Communication also helps you off the court because without communication you would not be able to understand the things in the world around you. One thing my peers have told me is that even when making a mistake on the court or in the classroom they see me always striving to do better each and every time the next ball comes around or lesson to be learned. I continue to learn and grow but strive to always do my best and succeed to the best of my ability at everything I do.
The sports I play and my studies have always been my main focus other than my family and friends. Having a support system is a good thing to have especially when dedicating so much of my next years to college and the game of volleyball. My family has always supported any of my dreams no matter how big or small they are. They have taught me that through hard work you can do anything that you want as long as you keep your eye on the prize. I have a very loving relationship with my family and friends as well. We enjoy spending time together and never Iturn down an opportunity to help them when they are in need.My family since I was a young child have always told me that my always open and caring heart is my best characteristic. No matter how big or small the task or favor at hand I am always willing to help them as they have always helped me. I also do love a competitive game with my family and friends no matter what it is we are doing. Whether it be who can clean the fastest or who can conquer the game of monopoly taking over all the properties. Thanks to the love and support of my family and the love of the game I have improved my talents and skills so much since the begging of my journey with volleyball. I am so eager to see how the next few years of high school will improve my skill and knowledge of the game. I am looking forward to the higher-level commitment and learning from some of the greatest players and coaches around.
