Since 7th grade, the sport of volleyball has helped shape who I am today. It has showed me the importance of motivating myself to become my personal best, even without help from others. High school volleyball was a long road that led me to the best team I’ve played with, and that was in club. My club team dominated competition and never failed to pull together and showcase our individual talents to win. My teammates continued to have faith in me during every game.
These victories continue to remind me to rise above any obstacles and live up to my talent as an individual player. Even on days we couldn’t get a victory, sharing a positive attitude changed the team’s perspective. Therefore, we pulled together and continued to try harder. This showed me how hard work always pays off, even outside of athletics. The other sports that have driven me to where I am today include Gymnastics/All-star Competitive Cheer, Softball, Ballet, Jazz, and Hip Hop Dance. I know how to perform my best with academics and always go beyond what is asked. My academic goal will be to pursue a job in the medical field. The best college choice for me is one that will suit my athletic and academic standards. I hope to have an impact on your program athletically and academically by continuing to contribute my leadership skills, drive, and talent.
