I have played volleyball since 4th grade. I have grown to love the sport and the feeling of being surrounded by teammates who become like family. I have always strived to be the best that I can be and encourage my teammates as much as possible. I have learned that nothing in life is given to me and I must work hard to earn everything. I have confidence that I can play at the collegiate level. I feel that I am a good match for a college team because I am willing to make sacrifices for my team and work as hard as I can to make my team and myself the best that we can be. My goal for academics is to earn my masters in nursing and to make a good life for myself and future family.
