Volleyball has made me learn that I am very competitive, no one likes to lose but in the cases that we do, I make sure to reflect back on the games to see where the team and myself need to improve. I have also discovered the importance and meaning of leadership and teamwork. Every team that I have been on resembles one big family, so I care about my teammates very much and make sure I can do everything in my power to encourage the team and persevere to win.
My academic goals for high school is to graduate with an academic honors diploma, and my academic goals for college are to graduate with promising credentials that will correspond with a career that I admire and enjoy.
Some skills I possess are athleticism, I've always loved any physical movement and have been suitable for most sports. I find it natural to read people's body language and energy to determine their character or how they are feeling. I really enjoy learning new things and am constantly seeking out new knowledge opportunities. I also like to stay organized and to be able to balance school, a job, and varsity volleyball produces exceptional time management skills for myself.
The people around me really influence the person I am. My family is very supportive of everything I do, they have pushed me to be my very best, and to make sure I’m happy with who I am and the future goals I want to accomplish. I love my family and friends very much, and I recognize my life would be tremendously different without them. The incredibly passionate game of volleyball has also influenced my awareness regarding myself and continues to teach me numerous life lessons and skills. I respect and appreciate the sport very much.
