I have worked to improve in volleyball since day one of sixth-grade practice. I have done this with enthusiasm and I do my best to encourage my teammates as well. When something is "too hard" I either try harder or take a look at it from another angle. Just so I can do it the best of my abilities. Despite being on the shorter end of my volleyball team, I had achieved most blocks on the team my junior year season. Mentally, I am capable of keeping it together in trying times, and pushing, even when I'm at my breaking point. I am academically secure. I have had all A's throughout high-school besides one B my freshman year. I handle what is put on my plate, from extra homework to advanced classes, to body busting workouts.
I am truly dedicated to volleyball. I broke my wrist in the middle of summer 2017. I still went to open gym and a volleyball camp. I worked for the rest of the summer to be able to hit as accurately with my left hand as I could with my right hand. I have efficiently become a "switch" hitter. I am capable of seeing where a block is and quickly adjusting to hit with the hand that is less likely to be blocked. Everything I do revolves around volleyball, even in the offseason. When I'm doing track, I think about how its to prepare me for volleyball. While participating in track, I also play on our high school AAU team, which has greatly improved my overall skills. During summers I attend as many camps as I can, and go to open gym practices to sharpen my skills, all while working.
