Personal Statement

Throughout my life, I’ve always been drawn to sports, in general. I played tennis for most of my life, and both of my older brothers are D1 and professional tennis players. However, in sixth grade I decided I wanted to do something of my own. I started looking for my “thing,” then I found volleyball. I tried out for my local club and made the highest team. From then on, volleyball became my passion. I believe a large part of this is that, unlike tennis, it’s a team sport.

I made my high school varsity team as a freshman, which had been my goal since I started playing. Accomplishing this created some challenges for me, such as balancing my academics and athletics. This is my greatest test because I enjoy learning new things in both school and volleyball. I’ve dedicated myself to the sport while also maintaining good grades throughout middle school and high school so far. My new goal going forward is to play high level volleyball at a school that is challenging in both academics and athletics.

This year I’ve played both high school varsity and club volleyball, and I’ve truly learned what it means to be a good teammate. I’ve learned that it’s not all about being the best player on the team, or being the most athletic. Instead, it’s about being the best you possible, to be willing to give 100% effort, to be “all in” for every game and practice, not only for yourself, but for your team. I was also honored to be voted most-improved on varsity and captain by my club team this season.
