Personal Statement

Going to State as a starting freshman was the biggest accomplishment of my volleyball career,  while missing going back to state by eight points in the final set has been one of the most challenging things I have had to face so far.  I have always relied on my faith to get me through difficult times and know that God is in control and has better plans for my future.  I know there are positive lessons to be learned by both good and bad events in my life.   I have learned that even with the hardest training, positive attitude, teamwork and solid volleyball skills, sometimes things still do not work out as I had planned.   There were other lessons to be learned through this experience such as being a positive role model for my teammates in how to handle defeat,  how to display good sportsmanship, and how to use it as a motivation to push my training and skills to the next level.   This experience has made me stronger and more focused on what it will take to return to state next year.   I have since added  beach volleyball training to my workouts and am loving it.  I set high goals for myself both academically and athletically and push myself hard to achieve them.  I am self-motivated and enjoy motivating others through example whether it is my own teammates or middle school players I coach at clinics.   I have a positive attitude and try not to take myself too seriously.  I train year round and work hard in the gym.  I enjoy watching college volleyball games, beach volleyball, and training videos that help me come up with creative workouts to push myself.  Volleyball is very important to me and I always give it my all.    My favorite things to do are going to the beach, participating in Beta activities, traveling around the world with my family and playing all kinds of volleyball.  In college, I hope to play both indoor and beach volleyball.
