At a young age, I started watching high school and college volleyball, and I looked up to the girls that were playing. When I first started playing sports, it was more of a fun thing to do. As I've grown and matured as an individual, that spark has turned into a passion, a want, and even a need to compete and perform. Volleyball has been a sport that I've been playing at the club level since I was just nine years old. Through it, I have learned selflessness, aggressiveness, leadership skills, body language tactics, and what I believe to be most important: being able to celebrate and have fun. At this point in my path, I'm looking forward to competing at the collegiate level. I want to bring my skills and fun spirit to a team that I will be able to have a positive impact on.
As for the academic side of my goals, I am striving in the classroom in high school to finish in the top ten percent of my grade. This has been a goal for me since I've been in grade school. Academics will be my top priority for the remainder of my education. Being a student athlete can be very challenging to deal with. However, this is something that I strive at, and what my parents have been pushing me towards since I was very young. This is what will make me stand out among other recruits.
