I have two mottos, "get with it or get out of the way" and "Sink or Swim." These are my mottos because they're how I learn, both in the classroom and on the court. I can be a very headstrong individual. When I want something I will do anything to get it. I know this will play a big part in my life as I dip into the real world. I want to help better our future not only for myself but for others too. Sink or Swim has played a big part in my life. It shows that as long as you're swimming or trying that you will not sink, you will not be dragged down. Being a student-athlete is an honor. It teaches you independence and to stand up for yourself, and I think those two things are huge at any stage of life. No matter what level of collegiate volleyball I plan to continue in, I promise not only to my present self but to my future and past self that I will never give up and that I will never sink.
