Sharayah’s Personal Statement
Hello, my name is Sharayah Seymour and I am a junior at Cassville High School. I am finished my sixth year of club volleyball which included one year with the Springfield Stars in Springfield, MO, four years at Ozark Juniors in Fayetteville, AR, and finishing this year with Tamales in Springfield, MO. On my club teams I have had the opportunity to play middle, outside, and right side hitter, all on the 1’s teams. I have played in many large tournaments. During my Freshmen year, I earned a starting position on my high school varsity squad playing full rotation as middle hitter and setter. Even though I never played setter for my club teams, my high school coach asked me to fill that role and I was able to rise to the challenge. As a Freshman, I earned my varsity letter, was selected All Big 8 Conference Team Honorable Mention, was selected to Ozark Sports Zone’s All Freshman Team and earned Academic All-State. As a Sophomore, I earned All Big 8 Conference first team, All District 2nd team, Academic All-State, and Rotary MVP for the season. I have been around sports all of my life and started playing softball and basketball at the age of 5. I approach the game of volleyball the same way I do life, with respect and dedication. I firmly believe that anything worth doing is worth doing right so I work hard at getting better each time I practice and play.
I look forward to my college education and plan to pursue a degree in biology, agriculture, or medicine. I have grown up around the outdoors, enjoying activities like hiking, camping and fishing with my family. My family instilled in me the love of the outdoors and wildlife and I want to make sure that the environment is protected so my kids can one day enjoy the outdoors just as I do.
