Throughout my life, I have loved playing a variety of sports from track and cross country, to swim team, soccer, basketball, and volleyball through eighth grade. I love the competition that comes with sports, but also the camaraderie you build with teammates as you work toward a common goal and push each other to become better to reach the next level. As much as I’ve enjoyed playing multiple sports, I decided to focus on volleyball because I have a passion for the game! I'm sure some of that comes from being around volleyball my whole life since my whole family loves to play! I have always been a natural leader and encourager, so the setting position has been a great fit and enabled me to continue to develop those skills. I also enjoy pushing myself in the classroom, so I will be prepared for the greater academic challenge I will face in college and in my career in the future.
I am currently playing for Illini Elite Volleyball Club on the 17U Black team. Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to continue playing the game I love at the collegiate level. Through having a challenging class load and being on a highly competitive volleyball team I have learned a strong work ethic and the ability to prioritize and organize my time to accomplish my goals.
