As of September 2020, I am currently ranked top 5 in Missouri Class 4, in both hitting percentage (.380) and blocks (1.1/set). Despite coming from a smaller school, my high school team still competes with the largest and most competitive schools in the state. I enjoy bettering myself as a player both physically by doing outside training with TopSpeed and competing in sand volleyball, as well as mentally by practicing meditation.
While volleyball is an important part in my life, my studies are a top priority, and am looking for a school that will be able to support my passion for science and research. I am undecided on what I'd like to major in, however I enjoy studying about physics, engineering, cosmology, environmental studies, design, as well as film/cinema and philosophy. I have a provisional patent for an invention made to monitor infant oxygen and ambient temperature in order to prevent infant heatstroke and SIDS. I am president of Girls Who Code, Co-Captain of Debate, and an active member in my school's Future Business Leader's of America extracurricular.
What makes me successful in school and volleyball is my work ethic and by staying motivated. As a practicing Buddhist, I believe that it is important to use our limited time in this life as effectively as possible while creating a positive world for those to follow. I do so in school by using what I've learned and applying it to areas that could potentially help others, such as my invention that protects children left in hot cars. I also do so in volleyball by empowering my teammates and pushing myself and them to be as successful as they can be.
