I love to compete and win. I've always had a love for sports and enthusiasm for winning. My family has always encouraged me to do my best in whatever I chose to do. I've never won just because I was the youngest in the family. Winning had to be earned, from family board games to competitive sports.
At age 11 I tried out for volleyball and instantly fell in love with the sport. Before volleyball I did many competitive sports with multiple achievements. These included national and state championship titles in competitive cheer, lettering my first year playing soccer and placing 1st in the Mid-Atlantic Region Reebok Crossfit competition in 2018. But my love has always been volleyball. I'm not only the setter, I can jump, hit and I'm not afraid to dive and hit the ground to win a point. I'm not afraid of hard work.
Through volleyball I've learned that not everyone gets playing time. In order to be the starter I need to give it everything I have every time I am on the court. I had to compete with multiple girls, who are my friends, in order to get my position. I've learned that my enthusiasm, positive attitude and love of volleyball is what made me stand out from my peers and become captain of our team. I've learned that being a team leader, always staying positive and encouraging to team members is crucial to everyone working together for the same goal.
My goal is always to win, not only in sports but also in my academic career. Currently, my dad is a Physician Assistant and my mom is a Registered Nurse, I am presently directing my studies in the healthcare field. I am enrolled in multiple science classes in high school to help me obtain that goal. I am able to keep a high GPA while putting in the time required to play volleyball.
