I’ve been an athlete since a fairly young age. I began competitive swimming at the age of 8, but started swimming several years before then. I qualified & competed in several state swim meets when I was younger. Switching from an individual sport like Swimming to a team sport like Volleyball, was very difficult. As a swimmer I only used to worry about myself, my attitude, & my progress. Now attitude & mentality on the court are very important to me. I enjoy encouraging my teammates & lifting them up. Being on a team, it’s your responsibility as a leader, to make sure your teammates are mentally alright, and that everyone shakes off that last bad play & is ready to kill the next. It isn’t just about you anymore. Being a positive force on the team is a great asset to have.
I began playing both school and travel indoor volleyball in Junior High. I am currently the middle blocker/hitter for my high school team. My club coach introduced me to beach volleyball in high school. At first I just did it to stay in shape and get better at indoor volleyball, but I am hooked on it now. My dream would be to play both beach and indoor volleyball in college. In the 2020 high school volleyball season I made the All-District Second Team and the All-District Academic Team.
I also know the importance of being conditioned & staying in shape. When it comes to a sport like Volleyball that includes fast-paced rallies, quick pivoting, & for me, constant jumping. I know stamina plays a large role in how well I perform. I actually enjoy working out. It doesn’t feel like work or something I “have” to do. During the COVID pandemic while I couldn’t attend school or summer workouts, I worked out daily most weeks on my own using Beachbody programs.
