Hello I’m Rickie,
As my passion for volleyball grows so does my competitiveness. Since the day I discovered my passion for volleyball I spend as much time as I can finding more ways to improve my skills. I first started playing in 7th grade but did not get competitive until 8th grade. Prior to playing volleyball I was a cheerleader. Not only did cheerleading give me my athleticism but it also helped me with my teamwork skills as well as trust. Starting volleyball at later age meant that I had to put in twice as much work than others to be better, in which I did and will never stop. However I still find time to give back to the community and contribute towards social change. I’ve volunteered at local food and diaper banks to help with single mothers and those who are in need of meals. As well as I’ve helped make an impact on lives of those who have been bullied. My work ethic to make positive change is continuous whether it be on or off the court.
In college I would like to major in business-marketing because just like in volleyball, marketing requires that same level of dedication and competitiveness. In both the career and sport, you find solutions, and ways to have an edge over your competitors to make the team better, as well as be prepared for your approach. Being my own biggest competitor I will never stop working hard to get ahead. Being able to play the sport I love and continuing my education would be a dream.
