College Aspirations -
My goal is to combine my love of learning and volleyball by obtaining a bachelor's degree and furthering my volleyball opportunities.
Good Candidate -
I am a good candidate because I value education and I am passionate about volleyball. I work hard to understand the coaches to make my team and myself better. I lead through example and work hard to encourage others. I am mentally and physically strong.
What makes me different -
I stood out as an athlete from a young age. My coaches were surprised when I could do things other kids my age couldn't. This pushed me to do more. I saw the older kids and wanted to be like them, so I pushed myself to be able to play with them. I went to every AAU and open gym I could. I attended camps and played with anyone who was willing. When I see someone better than me it makes me want to work even harder. I hold myself to a high standard and work everyday to improve.
I realize that education is important and valuable. It allows me to do what I love. I work hard both on and off the court.
