I have always loved playing volleyball because it combines all the things I love most about a sport: it requires a team dynamic to be successful in a competitive and high speed environment, where you are constantly facing challenges. This is why I hope to continue playing volleyball at the highest level possible at a school with strong academics.
I pride myself in the fact that I am taking all honors or AP classes where offered, and that I have been 1st team all conference, all district, all region and district rookie of the year. The qualities that helped me be successful in this is that I set very high standards that cause me to constantly push myself and that I welcome challenges. To me challenges are opportunities to see what you are capable of and push yourself even farther for your team. This is something I realized when I ran relays on track because I always wanted my teammates to be able to depend on me and know that I won’t let them down.
Finally I am always looking for ways to better myself not just athletically, but academically and personally too. That is why I am hoping to find a school that values these aspects and will help me improve in all ways possible.
