With my Dad playing college football on a full-ride scholarship and my older sisters playing volleyball starting at a very young age, I knew volleyball was going to be a big part of my life and that I would aspire to take my love for the game to college, like my Dad did. However, I never knew how much volleyball would teach me about not only sports, but about life and myself. I've had some ups and downs throughout my 6 year volleyball career and these hard times and good times taught me to always believe in myself and to know that sometimes things have to get worse before they get better. I've also learned that one play, one game or one bad day does not define you and that you should not dwell on it.
My rigorous school curriculum mixed with my time-consuming club season have taught me to use all of my time wisely and to always be organized and prepared. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to play with a 4-time state championship varsity team at Benet Academy, and many of the older girls have taught me valuable lessons on leadership, teamwork and believing in each other. I have been playing volleyball for 6 years now and my love for the game grows each year. I am looking for a larger school with good academic programs, preferably in sports medicine, which is the field I am interested in. I would also love to be a part of a positive and competitive environment on the volleyball court, where I can contribute and make the team, as well as my teammates better. I believe I can help your team because I have seen what it takes to be very successful and am willing to give 100% commitment and passion to get there.
