I have gained insight into the sport of volleyball by playing at a competitive level since I was in 6th grade. I have learned self confidence, accountability, team work, leadership, tenacity, focus and the rewards of hard work. I have learned to always focus on the next point. In life, just like in volleyball, there are some points when there are highs and some points where there are lows. The game keeps going as does life. When you get an ace, you move onto the next point. When you lose a point, you move onto the next point. You persevere and concentrate on the positive to move onto the next point.
With the help of the sport that I love I have learned to succeed in school, sports and life I need to make certain sacrifices to realize my ambitions. I am very determined to secure a great college education and to continue playing the sport I love while helping my school advance onto championships.
