Personal Mission Statement:

When I first picked up a volleyball in middle school I never thought I would gain such a strong passion for this sport. I have worked very hard to become the student and player I am today and nothing will stop me to strive for the best that I can be. As a student athlete I know there will be obstacles in all situations, but as life has taught me, there will always be a solution to every problem. If it's something such as a tough team on the court or a tough problem in the books, if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything. Like John Lennon has said, "There are no problems, only solutions." My dream is to play for a Division I, II, or III college and I know if I keep putting 110% effort in both my school work and training I can get there someday. Furthermore, like what the famous Paloma Faith once stated, "There's nothing better than achieving your goals."
