I am a 4.0 student who is very passionate about my education and the sport of volleyball. Volleyball was an outlet for me,to help cope with ordeals going on around me. I was born with a condition with my immune system and the very first infusion I received to help my immune system I develop every rare side effect in which my mother was told I would never walk, speak , hear so at a very early age my mother instilled in me to fight and prove to myself that I can do anything I set my mind too, to overcome the odds. So everyday I'm grateful and I prove to myself that I can advance and be better than I was yesterday. I love to encourage and motivate others because sometimes all you need is that one person to show that they believe in you.
