I have always been told that I am extremely coachable and that I listen. I can adjust to advice rapidly. I have a high sense of self awareness, off the court as well as on. I have been voted the team captain by my teammates from the 7th grade through the 10th grade. My goal is to play volleyball at the highest level in college while studying medicine. I want to be a PA. I have the discipline to do both and excel. I have never made any score lower than an A in my life on a course grade. I have a loving family that is supportive of these goals. My faith is the rock of my character.
As far as my other interest, I love playing the Ukulele, painting like my hero, Bob Ross and enjoying alone time while listening to music. These 3 activities help me recharge and refuel from training.
This years learning experience, while facing adversity: We have a young new high school coach this year. Seven games into the season, 30 seconds before we were to take the court, she strips (yes, take off) my libero jersey in the team huddle and gives it to a senior. I was devastated and unfortunately, embarrassed to lose my jersey. I called a lunch meeting with coach to discuss my feelings. Two games later when the senior could not handle the big hits of our rival, she strips the senior of the jersey and gives it back to me at the end of the first set. I did not feel the glory of winning my jersey back, but I felt the empathy for my embarrassed teammate. Sometimes we bond and learn from our lows, as much as, we do from our highs. I look forward to the life lessons of college volleyball.
