I am Tamara Hyman a tenth grader at the American Hebrew Academy, a Jewish international college preparatory boarding school in Greensboro, North Carolina. Living away from home makes me understand how important it is as an athlete to make healthy choices and stay in shape. I dedicate time everyday after school and on weekends to practicing, and improving my skills, while still having enough time for studying, and community services.
Freshman year when I had made the volleyball team, it did not take more than one official practice for me to realize I have fallen in love with the sport and have become passionate about something. In the fall volleyball season of 2016 I was awarded by my coach, the Eagles Award which is what we call our Most Valuable Player Award only have playing on this team one season prior. The award lead me to believe that I have the potential to play volleyball beyond my four years of high school.
One of my best qualities is being a fast learner, and having enthusiasm about what it is I am learning making me a good student and a coach-able team mate. I positively accept feedback, and am not afraid to ask questions in order to properly understand something new. My biggest goal right now in life, is to advance in my volleyball career, hopefully one day being able to play passed a high school level.
