Winning the Provincial Club Championships as a freshman and being team captain is the current highlight of my volleyball career. However, I feel I’ve grown the most as an athlete and have affirmed my drive to improve and uplift others to strive for their goals when I played on our Province’s U18 Rep team as a 14 year old, and now playing for the University of Manitoba Jr Bisons U18 team as a 15 year old. These experiences have strengthened my will to train harder and find opportunities to play and improve with my teammates in the off-season. It has also led me to refocus my own efforts on being an unstoppable player in all aspects of the game who fosters that same belief in her teammates and is capable of excelling at the college level.
I have been fortunate enough to be part of an amazing club program, so far winning Provincial Championships, the Premier Tournament series, and two Tournaments as the only team aging up. I learned the value of teamwork, commitment, challenging yourself, and leadership from my family who have a long history in the game as well as the amazing coaching staff in our volleyball club family. When I think about the future, I'm looking for a program that will be a good fit for me athletically as well as academically. I believe I not only have the talent to compete for a college team, but the character, work ethic, and leadership skills to make an immediate impact in any program. My life experiences as a Pacific Islander and Biracial Athlete have taught me adaptability, and resilience, and have given me the opportunity to develop excellent communication and collaborative skills that translate well and make me a great team player both on and off the court.
As a three-sport athlete and eight-time captain, I know that I have what it takes to be a real contributor for your team! I can think of nothing better than being a part of a high-performance environment at the University level and beyond.
