Athletics have always been a huge part of my life. Before playing volleyball on the club level, tennis was my number one sport. As an 8th grader, I came in second at state for singles 3A division. It was a great accomplishment, but not for me. The following year I competed again and won 1st place, defeating a senior, the same girl I lost to as an 8th grader. Cleary my love, talent, and determination in tennis is abundant, but volleyball stole my heart completely when my step mom first introduced me. My local area is not a hotbed for competitive volleyball. The type of volleyball training I was seeking is a 2-hour 20-minute drive each way in Birmingham, AL, and the college prep level I qualified to play practices three times a week. Me, and my entire family, had to make a lot of sacrifices; one of those being tennis. I am dedicated to playing and have a whole team of family members behind me. At the club level I played middle because of the lack of players at that position, but, my strength and preference is outside pin hitter. On my high school team I am the captain and used as an all-round player, never leaving the court. The objective for my collegiate future is to play volleyball in college. Once obtaining that goal, my next goal is to help my team make it to the NCAA tournament and succeed within that tournament.
I will be an asset to any team because, on the court, I am a vocal player who consistently maintains a positive and encouraging mentality, a player who has a burning competitive fire to be the best at whatever it is I do, and a player who competes BETTER under pressure. When it comes to off the court topics, I truly am one of a kind. I am not your average teenager in that I genuinely strive to make the right decision in every situation. My main focuses are family, school, volleyball, church and other extra curricular activities, My college goal is to pursue journalism as a major and see the door that opens for me as I dominate with my teammates on the court!
