I am and have always been passionate about volleyball. My hope is to attend a college where I would be able to play at a level that would be a good match for both my athletic and academic needs. From a young age, I believed to always stand up to a challenge and that conviction grows stronger every day. My goals for the present are to win conference with my high school team as well as getting a bid once again to nationals with my current club team, New WAVE. Secondly, I will work on improving my grades and hope to do that with the help of my teachers and family.
I always work towards being a good role model in my community as well as school and try to assist as much as I can. What separates me from other players is my strong desire to win, intensity, positive mindset, motivation, and commitment. My academic goals are to pursue a medical degree in dermatology, and I plan to begin that path with a bachelor’s degree in biology, organic chemistry, physics, or general chemistry.
I started playing volleyball at the age of five and have not stopped since. My main goal is to work hard in order to compete at a college level and I do so every day. After my studies are complete, I make sure that I have time throughout the week to incorporate time for myself. On and off the court I am a leader and enjoy encouraging my teammates in the hope of success. I would like to attend a college that will challenge me into becoming my better self. What makes me a unique player is that I am able to multitask and watch the opposite side of the court while also paying attention to what we are running on my side. I can consistently hit many different types of sets into multiple places on the court and I do a very good job at finding where the opposing player’s hands are when blocking. There are many lessons I learned from playing volleyball over these many years but one of the most important is teamwork, being able to share credit for success, and for failure, being a good teammate means doing my job on the court and celebrating my teammates and their successes. Playing volleyball has given me a better outlook on life and has taught me the amount of work needed to accomplish my goals. In addition, it has taught me how to deal with different personalities on and off the court, learning how to overcome the feeling of loss, and how to move on when you make a mistake.
The many skills I have learned on the court have translated well into my academic life. I completed my sophomore year with a 3.5/4.0 GPA and I plan to work hard and up my academic game. My goal is to achieve the best academic knowledge possible and include volleyball as part of my college experience, so I can play the sport I love while focusing on my academic goals. It is my hope to make my college proud.
