My main goal is to play competitive college volleyball while earning a college degree in biology. I believe that playing volleyball at a collegiate level is a once in a life time opportunity that I must take. I understand that academics plays a huge roll in my life, but volleyball has taught me persistence, discipline, perseverance, and grit
I have the discipline and drive to be a versatile player. Being left handed, at my club team I am a right side. For my 8th grade school team, I am an all around right side and setter. I am a hardworking team leader who is dedicated, adaptable, and passionate. I am driven and motivated to play with integrity. I am a coachable player who is an encouraging teammate and is always ready to work hard. I not only give my all in practice but I work extensively outside of practice to further develop my skills to become better at the sport I truly love. You will always see me in the gym improving my skill and constancy.
I have been athletic and playing sport for as long as I can remember (primarily swim, volleyball, track, and karate). My parents have taught me that sports are a more than an athletic activity but a learning opportunity to help you grow physically and mentally. For example, when I was entering the 5th gradeI tried out for the middle school volleyball team, but didn't make it. I immediately took to account that I need to work harder and become stronger for next years tryouts. That year I joined NAVC (a local club teem) and everyday I worked on improving my skills. When tryouts for my middle school team came around again I made the team. I realized then that success isn't given it is earned. “ Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” by Winstone Churchill. Now, at each tryout my coach tells my story to inspire the other girls who aretrying out. She then tells them that winning isn't a given but hard work can over come many things.
My passion and love for volleyball is endless. I know in order to be at the next level it takes, hard work, dedication, and passion. I believe I will be a great asset to your program.
