In my college search thus far, I've realized a lot of things that I desire my alma mater to have. I am heavily focused on my academics. I will not compromise on the quality of education that I am seeking because my academics will take me farther than my volleyball skills. I am looking for a university that will provide a top-notch engineering program that will both challenge and engage me. I am also looking to take my volleyball experience to the next level. My competitive nature encompasses not only my academic desires, but also my athletic desires. I want to play for a team and school that will push me mentally and physically; I am not ready to give up this competitive sport that has taught and will continue to teach me so many valuable lessons. It is important to me to pursue a team that will support me on and off the court and that will encourage me to continue progressing my skills throughout my career. My academics may take priority, but volleyball is not something that will fade into the background. It has only slightly lesser of a priority than my higher education.
I am very involved outside of my academics and athletics. My student council and Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddle are extremely important to me. I co-chaired our student council trivia night this past year, and we raised over $14,000. Our council also brought Christmas to an underprivileged elementary school in our district. We collected over 500 gifts and came to the school dressed as elves to deliver the gifts. I am the co-president of my FCA huddle, and I was chosen to be a part of the Metro East FCA Student Board. Every day I look to make a positive impact on campus. I use my leadership position to set an example for my huddle members to follow.
