Ever since I first stepped out on the court, I have loved playing volleyball. Playing in college has always been a dream of mine. I started playing competitive volleyball my seventh grade year, but I have always been in the gym because my Mom has always been a coach. Outside of volleyball, I have played basketball and ran track as well.
Growing up in an athletic household has influenced me and helped me become the person and athlete I am today. Both of my parents played sports in college, and my brother will be returning to BYU for his Seniot baseball season. I look up to my older brother, and he has taught me how to have a strong mindset and great work ethic to achieve the goals I want in life. He has also shared his experiences with me hoping I can make the best decision about my college choice. My parents have taught me that playing sports is more than being a good athlete and is about accountability, teamwork, and determination.
I am a versatile player. For my high school team, we have ran a 6-2 and 5-1 offense, so I have been the primary setter, a right side hitter, and an outside hitter. For my club, I am a setter and sometimes play right side as well. I am very driven and passionate. I always want to hear constructive feedback to improve my skill set. I always give everything I have when I step onto the court, and I will take any opportunity to improve my skills, whether it be during practice or outside of practice. My parents and siblings have taught me to always work hard and to never let anything hold me back.
I am looking for a school that has a winning tradition, a knowledgeable coaching staff, and an amazing playing atmosphere that will not only challenge me on the court, but also in the classroom. Success in the classroom is just as important to me as success on the court. I want to be challenged mentally as well as athletically. I am open to all options because I want to find the best fit for me. My love for volleyball is unconditional, and I am very excited to see what the recruiting process has in store for me over the next year. Finding my home for the four years after I graduate from high school will be the biggest decision of my life so far, and I plan to put all my energy into finding the best place that fits my athletic and academic needs.
