My love for volleyball began when I was in 6th grade. My P.E. coach, who was also the volleyball coach, encouraged me to try out for my schools team. I have been a member of the team now for five years, and enjoyed learning new things every year. My most memorable moment was my freshman year when I played in a game that made history for our school. We made it to the second round of playoffs. Although we lost, I saw it as a milestone for a bigger goal, which is winning state.
I have been playing travel ball for two years, I feel that this experience has forced me outside of my comfort zone, which has helped me grow as a person and as a player. I have been able to go to new places, meet new people, learn new positions and play against some of the best competition in the southeast. This experience has given me confidence in myself that lets me know that I can compete at the next level, given the opportunity.
