My goals are to continue to learn about the game, continue to improve, compete to the best of my ability at the highest possible level while achieving academic excellence. I am very passionate about volleyball and playing has allowed me to make new friends, travel to different places and learn more about myself.
I am a second degree black belt in taekwondo. Even though taekwondo is an individual sport, I use the skills I applied to succeed at taekwondo - discipline, commitment, and hard work- to succeed at volleyball. One of the most important things I learned in taekwondo that I also apply to playing volleyball is to lead by example.
I am a great candidate because I am a team player, hard-working, dedicated and driven. I use my mistakes as a way to learn and improve. I work hard during practice and outside of practice. I value the guidance and instructions from my coaches that allow me to better understand my and the team’s short term and long term strategies on the court.
I am also a great candidate because I am a versatile player and am happy to play any position when asked or needed. I am a 6-rotation outside hitter. During my freshman and sophomore year of high school at The Academy of the Holy Cross, I was the starting setter on the varsity team and I recorded 1,088 assists. I transferred to The Flint Hill School where I will play outside. I am training hard to continue to develop strong volleyball IQ and to hone my skills on defense and outside.
Finally, I am also a great candidate because education is my top priority. I attend The Flint Hill School in Jermantown, Virginia. I am enrolled in AP and honors classes and maintain a 4.3 GPA. I love math, science and photography. I apply the same hard work, dedication, drive and passion I have for volleyball, to academics. I am excited to continue my journey as a student athlete.
