I am a student athlete with a strong passion for my sport and extraordinary level of dedication to academics. I started playing volleyball when I was 10 years old and fell in love instantly. I’ve dedicated hundreds of hours of development to the sport. I’ve also been told by several of my coaches that I am the hardest working player on the team with a tremendous amount of effort. From playing for my school or club each year along with private lessons, I am constantly learning and working to improve my position. Being a part of a team has been so beneficial for me personally. It has taught me the importance of confidence and loyalty. I understand my role as a setter and hold myself and team accountable. I have a positive attitude, even in low situations. I actively listen, communicate, and respect my teammates and coaches. I celebrate teammates successes. Meanwhile, I maintain an above average standard for myself in the classroom. I am currently #3 in my class out of 340 students with a 5.27 GPA. My goal is to attend college to pursue a business degree. As a hard-working student athlete, it is also my desire to continue playing volleyball at the collegiate level.
