PERSONAL STATEMENT

Evolving into an Olympic bound athlete has always been a solid goal of mine, and I have always pushed myself to sweat, climb and leap towards my ambitions. Volleyball has been a second nature lifestyle for as long as I can remember particularly because there are two passionate outside hitters in my close knit family. I have expected to pursue a strong professional career in volleyball. Being a dedicated volleyball player has developed a number of invaluable qualities which have enabled me to excel athletically and professionally. Ambition drives me to make the necessary sacrifices and meet the strictest of regimes to influence a steady incline in my strength and technical advancement. Exceptional teamwork skills have molded me into a dynamic and progressive individual who can easily adapt to excel when faced with innovative challenges. I consider myself to be fully responsible for the morale of the team which drives me to continually encourage and support my teammates.
