Competing in this sport has taught me many things. I've learned the value of hard work, and how it contributes to growth. I've learned how to be a team player, encourage others, and to be coachable. I have learned that things won't always come easy, and if you want to get better at something, you have to work for it. I constantly keep up with my grades, and make sure that my academics are up to standard. I also have multiple traits that contribute to the way I act. I love to be social, and meet new people. I am outgoing, and am not afraid to step out of my comfort zone. I am also a leader, and take pride in not only my achievements, but the achievements of my team. I aspire to play volleyball in college. I want to better myself in the sport, as well as maintain high grades, to eventually move on to a career. For these reasons, I'd make a great contribution to your team. Thank you.
