Volleyball has been part of my life since elementary school. I stepped onto the court and automatically knew I could hold a promising future in this sport. I'm a hard worker and am open to trying new techniques to make myself an even smarter player. Over the years, volleyball has not only been great for me physically but also personally. It has taught me how to use to my voice and be heard, be a leader and a follower. This past 2019-2020 season, I started competing in beach volleyball after 8 years of indoor. I'm glad that I started this new journey for it gave me a new and fresh perspective on a sport that I had always known. It helped me build an even stronger mindset and communication skills during the game. The game has given me so much and during my collegiate years, I will continue to apply my drive, character, and heart to everything volleyball and academically related.
