Growing up I actually played basketball from a young age, but in middle school I decided to try volleyball in addition to basketball. Instantly I was hooked, and my heart fell in love with volleyball. Since middle school I actually shifted my focus from basketball to volleyball, but I still enjoy multiple sports year round. I am a strong individual with good communication skills, and I see the advantages of good teamwork. I would like to secure a position in a well-established, innovative college where I can further develop my skills and advance within the volleyball team. I am successful at developing both single game and tournament strategies to lead my team to the best outcome possible. I am a natural leader and consider hard work to be a must at succeeding in volleyball and life.
