I started playing volleyball when I was 9 years old when I was first exposed to volleyball at a camp. Ever since the day I started playing volleyball I knew I had found my passion. I played up an age group for 2 years until I decided it was better to play with my age group. While I continued to play multiple sports in middle school including basketball, softball, track and volleyball I had to decide to only play travel volleyball outside of school. I also play beach volleyball when I don’t have indoor. I have worked over the years to become better at volleyball and play at a competitive club.
I work on volleyball almost every day, whether it’s with my team, a private lesson or training on my own. I have been trained to play in any position, but I have specialized in outside hitter and defensive specialist. I have played wherever my coaches have needed me, whether that’s hitting from either pin, back row and I even set for my middle school team. I have worked hard to become a 6 rotation player. In 2018 my club team won the USAV National Championship in Detroit. 2019 we qualified for Nationals at the open level and won the AAU Premier division National Championship.
Academics have always been important to me. I completed 4 high school honors level classes in middle school. Currently I am attending Suncoast High School, ranked number 11 in Florida, in their Math, Science and Engineering program taking AP courses as a Freshman. I was a 6 rotation varsity starter during my freshman year.
I want to play volleyball in college because I enjoy playing volleyball, I want to play at the highest level and get a good education to prepare me for a career after volleyball.
