Personal Statement

This past school season was my second year on varsity and I experienced some of the proudest moments I’ve had while playing school volleyball. Even though Brighton volleyball has never been the best in the city, we came first in our division this year and were seeded fourth going into sectionals. We had a comeback season, finishing 11-5 after our season, the first time in 11 years getting to double digits. On top of that we won our first tournament in 11 years! This past season has taught me so much about perseverance and pushing through the rough patches which is the hardest part of volleyball to me. We had a big slump in the middle of our season after not getting enough time in the gym between games, but were able to maintain the skills we had worked on earlier in the season and succeed in our matches. I believe that determination and will power is essential to the game and is what helped our team to be so successful. 

The first time I ever touched a volleyball was in third grade at a camp at the University of Rochester that my mom had signed me up for. Four years later, I signed up for modified and fell in love with the sport. Today, eight years later, volleyball has shaped me into the person that I am today. It taught me the value of hard work and teamwork, two skills that I hope I can apply later on in my professional life. I’m looking for a program where I can compete at a level that is challenging; somewhere that I can continue to improve. It is also very important to me that academics are taken seriously and I will be able to be challenged in the classroom as well as on court. I hope that whatever program I end up with will have a growing team that is focused on continued improvement and refinement and the spirit of the program will be driven by the athletes determination and drive to get better and compete at a higher level than before. Thank you for your time and feel free to get in contact with any questions!
