Sports have always been a huge part of my life, especially volleyball. I started playing when I was in middle school. I knew I wanted to play volleyball when I realized that I could have so much fun with this sport. I have continued working on my game throughout middle school and my first two years in high school. I am the head captain of our JV team. My teammates know me as the “energy” person because I will always bring the energy, regardless of if we are losing or winning. I hype my teammates up and always remind them that they are good and got a spot on the team because of it. Having good grades and keeping my 4.0 is really important to me. I participated in student council my freshman year to help build school traditions, as our school is only three years old. My parents have always been a huge part of my life including school, sports, and now NCSA. My goals for when I graduate high school is to graduate with a 4.0 and get recruited by a college to play volleyball. The biggest obstacle I have learned with volleyball is that it's a mental game. My dad gave me this piece of advice that I have carried throughout my volleyball career, “you have to get the last play out of your head so that you can focus and do your best on the next.” During this journey, I am excited for what will come and can’t wait to see where it takes me.
