Grit, Grace and Gratitude
At one point in my volleyball career I was being recruited by division one schools and had big dreams of competing at the highest level possible. Now after working hard to recover from MPFL reconstruction surgery after an injury during a volleyball tournament, my goals have changed. I am now more focused on having fun and working hard with a competitive team and want to obtain a strong education, make connections and prepare for my future.
I just completed my first semester at Oakland Community College and earned a 3.64 GPA. I will be competing with the volleyball team this spring playing six rotations and I am so excited to return to the court stronger than ever!
I am no longer sure what my dream school looks like. Psychology and Business will be my academic focus, and I know I want to play volleyball at a high level. However, the pressure to commit to the biggest, most competitive volleyball school has passed, and it is very freeing. I am entertaining opportunities at intriguing schools that would not have been on my radar before. Where I will end up is still undecided, but I know it will be exactly where I am meant to be.
