When I first began volleyball as a late bloomer I had a sudden interest. This interest soon became a major hobby and now it has shaped me into who I am today. Being a student athlete I knew would be challenging however with enough self discipline and determination I was able to adjust and become acquainted with the skills to make me successful at being one. Competing at an elite level is something I thrive for and will accomplish. However, what I am most interested in, are schools that will challenge me not only with my athletics but my academics. Playing a sport and being successful in school is an important aspect of my life that I plan to continue throughout college.
