I have grown up in the volleyball environment for pretty much my entire life, from my mom coaching while I was little and watching my older cousins play, to getting the chance to start my career in fourth grade. I have always strived to be the best on the court as well as in the classroom, whether it was staying extra after practice to work on plays, or staying up late to study for tests. I am currently juggling being a three sport athlete, playing travel volleyball, and maintaining a 4.0 GPA. I lead by example during practices and games by never putting my head down after a mistake and always making up for it with the next play. I do my best to be the leader my team needs both on and off the court by always being there to pick them up when they are down, whether it is during practice or outside of volleyball. I have always been a firm believer in work ethic, I believe that without hard work and dedication you will never grow as an athlete or as a person. I do my best to be a positive role model in my community by helping teach youth volleyball, as well as teach them important life skills. I am ready and have my full dedication set towards working hard to achieve my college degree while playing the sport that I adore most.
