Volleyball has been my love and passion ever since I was 8 years old. I played other sports, but quickly gravitated to volleyball because of its ability to provide me an environment to grow and challenge me athletically and personally. I was very fortunate to be part of my club team that placed 3rd at AAU Nationals last year. That experience has been one of the most amazing opportunities in my life so far. It has taught me the importance of teamwork, fighting spirit, and hard work. Furthermore, it fueled my focus and dream to play in college.
My goals in high school are to continue to drive for academic excellence and further develop my teamwork and leadership skills on and off the court. On the court as a freshman and sophomore, I played on the varsity team. Off the court, I was elected class president for student council and actively participated in various community services and musical organizations. Ideally, I would like to find a college that not only has a volleyball program that I can successfully contribute to, but also that would challenge me academically to attain a degree in biology and/or pre-medicine.
