Volleyball brings me happiness and joy, sometimes heartache, but always challenge and opportunity for growth. I have played volleyball at the club and school level for the past six years and I would love to continue playing beyond high school. I am seeking a competitive, tight knit and successful volleyball program in a highly academic setting as I pursue a career in medicine.
I encourage new challenges on a regular basis seeking out ways to hone my established skills and learn new ones. I am constantly asking my coaches what I can do to improve my level of play. I thrive on consistent feedback as this is how I learn best. If I make a mistake, I want to know how to remedy it. If I do something well, I want reinforcement of how to do it again. I take pride in being coachable.
I want to play collegiate volleyball because I am competitive, I want to be challenged and love to be a leader. My coaches often say I am "the calm in the storm" on the court. I love to lead and strive to make myself and others around me better. This does not start and stop within the lines of the court.
Relationships with teammates and my coaches are of the utmost importance. We are all connected, playing as unit, not individuals. Efforts to foster close relationships off the court brings cohesiveness on the court. We are better together.
