Personal Statement

Even though I have been a multi-sport athlete my whole life, playing volleyball is my passion. I’ve been on the club court for five years now, having served as captain for two of them.  As a sophomore, this is my third year on the Carolina Friends School Varsity team, and my first year as captain.

Recently, I was awarded AAU Academic-All American due to the service work I do with my high school and my performance with my club team at AAU Nationals.  In August, my school team participated in the one tournament we play in each season, and I was recognized as All Tournament. 

I first started for my high school varsity team as an 8th grader when we continued onto States and achieved the best win/loss record in school history. I earned All-Tournament that year as well, and All-Conference Honorable Mention at the end of our season. In summer 2017, I received the highest marks possible in an invitation-only USAV High Performance Select Camp. 

As a 5’11” outside hitter, I am smart at the net, a strong passer, and always hungry for strong competition.  I enjoy continuously pushing beyond my limits to attain new goals. When I think about my future as a collegiate athlete, I want a challenging academic program as well as an opportunity to participate on a volleyball team where I can have an impact.  Off and on the court, I am a perfectionist who strives for success through positivity, hard work, and integrity.

To Note:  For the past five years I have attended Carolina Friends School, a Quaker-philosophy education where students do not receive GPAs, ranks, or grades. Carolina Friends School focuses on social justice, critical thinking, academic independence, collaboration, and helping others through service.  I believe strongly that everyone can have a positive impact on those around them.
