My goals and aspirations are to be able to sign and play volleyball with a college that allows me to improve every moment I play the sport I love. Another dream is to be able to play for the USA Women's National Volleyball Team and find a career in the sport. I am a good candidate because I believe I am a team player, very committed to the sport I play, and dedicated to improving and learning from coaches that I know will be able to help me achieve my goals and live out my passions. For example, when my team and I are down either from points or having trouble mastering a skill we know how to perform, my team depends on me to lead in challenging times. I am different from other recruits in character because I am not only a teammate to the rest of the players on my team, but also a friend that is willing to motivate and lift them up as a person and teammate on and off the court. Another trait about me is that I can inspire, motivate, and drive my teammates to achieve at times beyond abilities. My teammates rely on me to bring encouraging energy and positive excitement as well as making sure we all are playing to the best of our abilities and battling each point as a fight. As a student-athlete, I maintain a balance lifestyle by being committed for all volleyball activities, keeping achievable grades, and giving part of my day into coaching younger athletes in the same sport.
