Personal Statement

Hello,

I am happy to announce that I was accepted to Pitzer College and will be playing volleyball with the Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens. 

Thank you to all of the inspirational HP, College, Club, and High School coaches, players, and parents who have supported me. I am thrilled to continue to play the sport I love. 

With appreciation and gratitude-Laurel


My name is Laurel Park and I am a senior at Acalanes High School in Lafayette, CA. I am a 6’1” pin hitter. This club season I am playing for Diablo Valley Volleyball Club. I am interested in attending a selective academic college and playing collegiate volleyball. Although I am not sure which specific undergraduate degree I will seek, I am very interested in continuing to pursue a law degree once I have completed my Bachelor's degree. I began my volleyball career 5 years ago as a middle playing for Ozark Juniors Volleyball Club in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  Our 12's team won our Regional Tournament and qualified for Junior Nationals.  I began playing as a pin hitter 3 years ago during my freshman high school season.

            When I was in kindergarten my parents accelerated me up a grade, so I have typically been the youngest student in most all of my classes. I started playing up an age group in volleyball when we moved to California during eighth grade in order to keep up with my academic peers. Throughout my volleyball career, I have worked hard to compete with my peers who are typically one to two years older than me. I have also been selected to attend USAV High-Performance camps for the past two years and have attended numerous college and club volleyball camps to continuously improve my game.

            I feel that being a good leader is an essential quality both on and off the court. As a freshman, I was selected as one of five applicants out of a large applicant pool to be on the Leadership program at my school and was selected to be a part of the Leadership program again this year and serve on the Diversity Board as well as the District Diversity Committee.  Leadership has become a huge part of my life and has taught me how to embrace being uncomfortable in new situations and how to be a reliable student and teammate. I pride myself on my rigorous work ethic and my advisors and peers know that they can count on me for the task at hand.  On the court, I show my leadership by maintaining a positive attitude and encouraging my teammates. I feel I would bring these leadership skills to any college team that I play for as well as my love and passion for the sport of volleyball.
