I have been playing volleyball since I was 8 years old, the first time I stepped on the volleyball court I knew it was where I belonged. When I was younger I would dream of being in the Olympics, playing for the gold with Team USA! I woke up at 5 o'clock every morning one summer to watch Olympic Volleyball. I played for my school team all three years of middle school, going from practice team (6th grade) to Captain (7th and 8th grade). Those three years I worked like never before to improve my skills. But that wasn't enough, it was time to work so I could become a 'Lady Eagle' in high school. I started doing setting clinics and camps. I knew there was a spot for me on the varsity team, I just had to become a really solid setter. My freshman year of highschool I made varsity as a setter, and co-captain (all those hard setting camps paid off). By sophomore year I was captain.
I have met my goal, now it's time for a new and improved goal. I've got my sights set on college volleyball and I won't give up. When I'm on the court I want it to be known that I am making a difference. I want to be a player that when I come off you can tell I have played my hardest, and given 110%.
In order to play in college I knew I needed to play club. The last few seasons I've been playing at Texas Image, it's been really great for me in learning teamwork, grit, and leadership. Academically, I've always worked hard and have great parental support, I maintain a GPA higher than 3.7 and I intend to keep it that way.
Volleyball is very important to me and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to become the best player I can be. Team USA 2024, here I come!
