I have been passionate about volleyball from a young age. I started playing volleyball in the second grade. As an 8th grader, I played on the Varsity team at Desert Academy and our team went to State. In 9th grade, I transferred to St. Michael's High School and did not have the option to play Varsity because of the NMAA transfer rule. I have worked hard to learn as much as I can about the game and to improve my skills. I continue to work at getting better. I am a great teammate on and off the court. I get along well with others and have a positive attitude. I work hard on the court and do my best to encourage others. I have the ability to stay focused during high pressured games. Over the years, I've had to deal with some challenges but I've managed to get through them and learn from them. I understand the importance of school and I do a good job of balancing school and volleyball so I manage to get good grades. I hope to play volleyball for many more years.
