Hi, I’m Laila Hilton. I am approaching the end of my sophomore year at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver, Colorado. I will be graduating with the class of 2023. I am a highly motivated student, who loves to learn new things. I take both honors and AP classes because I like to challenge myself academically. I intend to continue playing volleyball while pursuing a degree in either law or the sciences. I started playing recreation volleyball when I was ten, and have been playing ever since. I transitioned to club volleyball at 303 Volleyball Academy 3 seasons ago. I am currently on the 16 Alpha team as a middle and outside hitter. I was able to play as a middle blocker on the 2019 varsity volleyball team as a freshman. The high school season has finally begun (due to covid) and I will be playing all around in the varsity team once again. I have also been selected to be one of the team captains. This title is something I hold dear, as it will help me be a better leader and positive influence to others. I am a very focused player. I may appear serious but I am always thinking of ways to improve my skills. Trust me I do have a fun side. I take all feedback from my coaches, and strive to implement the next steps provided.
