I am not a stranger to hard work, discipline and excellence, in the classroom, on the volleyball court and in life. I began playing volleyball in middle school, after 10 years of being a gymnast. When I entered junior high school, I knew I needed to improve my skills so I could bring my best to the game, so I also tried out and made a club volleyball team. My first year, I made a regional team but was often asked to sub for higher ranked teams, and in my second year of club volleyball made the national team and have been at that level since, and have experienced the joy of my team earning a bid and playing at the USA Volleyball Nationals in Minneapolis, MN in 2017. I also made the varsity volleyball team at my high school as a freshman. I have excelled as a middle hitter and this year expanded my volleyball resume to include playing right side.
Through volleyball, I have learned the importance of being a good team player, honoring the game, my teammates, coaches and officials. In the classroom, I’ve learned the joys and rewards of working hard which has allowed me to have a 3.7 GPA at an academically challenging private-school. From my parents I have learned to dream big, believe in God and myself, laugh, live life to the fullest and to always give back to those around me.
It is my desire to play volleyball at a collegiate level, while pursuing a nursing degree. I am looking for a college that will allow me to continue to excel on the court, in the classroom and in life.
