Personal Statement

                I became interested in volleyball in the sixth grade.  One of my future teammates would wear tournament shirts to school and I thought that it sounded like a lot of fun.  It wasn't until seventh grade that I was able to join the school volleyball team. From the beginning I felt so behind.  Most of my teammates had already played club ball for several seasons, as had my club teammates when I started competitive club ball. Rather than discouraging me from volleyball, these experiences made me determined to become as good as my teammates and other girls my age.  It took an incredible amount of hard work and dedication, but I was eager and focused as I accepted this challenge. Coming early and staying late at practice was not unusual, nor was going to extra clinics and private lessons. I had to "give up" time with my friends, but  each experience offered me some way to become better at the sport I love.  My hard work has definitely paid off.  I made the varsity team as a Freshman, and was the starting middle for my team.  I set a record during this season for the most blocks by a middle at my high school.  I was finally comfortable in my sport, but more challenges awaited.  Not only did my club coaches this season name me as captain of our team, but they also decided to move me to outside hitter and play me all around.   This was quite a change, but one I readily accepted.  Each part of my game has improved this club season, and I believe I would be an asset to any team. 

                Off the court I am also a hard working student.  I have a 4.0 GPA so far and am enrolled in advanced Math, Science, History,  English, and Spanish classes. I do not know what career path I will pursue, but Math and Science are my favorite subjects so far. Medicine and engineering are considerations. I have had to work on becoming more organized and efficient in order to play competitive sports and keep up with my schoolwork, but these qualities will benefit me no matter where life takes me. During my Freshman year I have also been recognized as a good citizen, being named the student of the month in my fall semester. I was also nominated to the principal's council, a group of ten freshman student's who meet monthly with the school principal.  During these meetings we discuss current issues, problem solve, and find ways to improve our school. Participating in this council has allowed me to become a better leader which can help me in volleyball as well.

                I am excited about what my future holds.   I have worked hard and built a strong foundation which will serve me well. My motivation to become a more skilled volleyball player, my ability to adjust to new situations, and my love and dedication to this sport would benefit any program I participate in. Thank you for your consideration.
