Personal Statement

When my friends think of me, volleyball immediately pops into their heads. Maybe it’s because of how much dedication I put in or how much I live to play and love the sport.  I started playing volleyball when I turned 11 on summer vacation in Europe (Slovakia/Czech Republic) when I was visiting my grandparents.  My close friends there played competitive volleyball, and playing with them made me interested in the sport.

After returning to Maryland, I stopped gymnastics and signed up for as many volleyball clinics as I could. I immediately knew that I had made the right choice, and strived to work as hard as I could to be the best that I could.  After a couple months of clinics, I went to tryouts and made the team. Most of my teammates were bigger and more experienced players since they were a year older, and played longer. As a team member new to volleyball, I didn’t get much playtime at first, but that did not discourage me!  On contrary, it motivated me to work harder and learn from my teammates. I even asked the older teams if I could stay and practice with them to get a better feel for the game. The second year of my volleyball career I was starting libero. Then I progressed to play all around as both a defense specialist and an outside hitter.  I work on practicing hard, improving my technique, stamina, agility, and game skills, so one day I can play at the collegiate level.

Volleyball is a team sport and positive team energy is important for winning. Therefore, I always strive to stay positive, encourage my teammates, concentrate on the next point, learn from my mistakes, and play fearlessly.

When I play volleyball, I forget about school work and everyday stress. Playing makes me feel happy and relaxed.  I enjoy being on the team and being the part of the energy and friendship that brings it all together.

At school, I work hard and maintain good grades. Knowing that I have volleyball practice or tournament to get to on time, motivates me to work harder, stay organized, and plan my study ahead.

I am looking for the college that will challenge me academically and on the court. I want to grow, not just as a player, but as a well-rounded individual who can be a valuable, contributing member of society and a good reliable friend to those around me. Most importantly I want to share my love for volleyball for as long as I can.
