My parents have always been a great support system for me. They always push me to do better in whatever I do, but my aunt Angela is a big reason why I continue to play volleyball and enjoy it so much. Sadly my aunt passed away May 10, 2018, but even though she’s gone I still play for her and think of her every time I step on a court. My aunt also continued to coach volleyball and basketball through everything that was going on, and I know that if she can push through multiple brain tumors and surgery’s that I can complete anything that I set my mind to. Although the hardest game of volleyball I’ve ever played was the day that my aunt passed away. That day has been the hardest day of my life. My mom and dad coached me in the summer of 2018. After my family found out everyone told us that we could cancel the game. My mom left it up to me, but she also told me that Angela would want us to play the game. I decided that I didn’t want her to cancel the game. When we got there everyone hugged me and I started to cry, but I knew that it was going to be ok. I was kind of worried at first, but I wanted to win that game for Her. We won the game, and it was the best game I’ve ever won. That game showed me that even through the really hard times if you go out and give it your all then anything’s possible. Even though my aunt is gone I’m so glad to be able to play volleyball for her.
