I never touched a volleyball until the first day of tryouts my freshman year of high school. I immediately fell in love with the game. I knew this was the sport for me. Shortly thereafter I made a commitment to becoming the best player and teammate that I can possibly be. I’m late starting the sport but I plan on working my tail off to make up for the years I wasn’t playing. This has become a seven day a week sport for me.
I’ve competed as an individual athlete since the age of 5. I competed in gymnastics until the age of 12. That’s when I transitioned to competing in CrossFit. I’ve been ranked inside the top fifty in the world for the last three years. I’ve given up competing in CrossFit to completely focus on volleyball. I coach CrossFit and workout daily, but my primary focus is on my grades and becoming the best volleyball player I can possibly be.
I am a leader. Not just on the volleyball court but also in my social group. I live my life in a way that sets a good example for my friends and teammates. Coaching and hard work are in my blood. I feel that helping others and setting a good example are two of my most valuable characteristics.
In the classroom, I probably go a little overboard. I have a 4.0 GPA and I’m very proud of that fact. I don’t plan on having anything less. I study hard to ensure that my grades are exactly what I want them to be. I currently take one AP course and believe that my junior year I will have three total. I’m just as excited about succeeding in the classroom as I am about succeeding on the volleyball court.
I want to attend a college where I can push myself in the classroom and on the court. I am open to all options and want to ultimately find the right college fit at the highest level of competition possible. I hope to continue being a good role model to all my peers and make my parents proud, as well as a great teammate.
