I have been playing volleyball sense the sixth grade. I also participated in basketball and track as a sixth grader and will continue until the end of my senior year. Although I am a three sport athlete, volleyball has always been my top priority and greatest passion. Being on varsity as a freshman in all three sports has taught me valuable lessons that I can bring onto a collegiate team. I had to constantly push myself harder to earn and keep my starting position on the court. This proved to myself when I work hard for the things I want I can succeed above most. The experiences on the court contributed to my academic goals. I have taken honors classes sense my freshman year, am the student body secretary for Salmon High School and value my time as a member of the Nation Honors Society. All of which have motivated me to maintain higher grades while giving back to my peers and other community members.
For some, college can be seen as a stressful time in their life, yet I have always visioned it to be a way to access the next part of my future. I cannot see my future without volleyball. Having the feeling of being apart of a team who supports you will always be one of my greatest motivations to become better. I work hard on the court, in the classroom, the weight room, and in my community. I am a great leader and have been team captain of the Salmon Volleyball team sense my sophomore year. I love to see my teammates grow and have a hand in helping them achieve their goals. I am a competitive person that loves to win, but always find the growth that correlates with defeat. Along with volleyball I have a love for beauty, in college I will work towards becoming a certified cosmetologist. While pushing myself to become better academically, I am ecstatic to continue my dream of playing volleyball at the collegiate level, celebrating victories with a new team as we achieve our goals.
