I love to play sports, especially volleyball. I want to take advantage of my skills and put myself in a position where I can offer a school the opportunity to select an incoming student who will excel academically and athletically. In return, I am hoping to earn an opportunity to play for a top tier volleyball team and earn a undergraduate degree from an institution that truly focusses on academics! Sports will be a major part of my life for a long, long time to come. In addition, I really love playing team sports, and know that being part of a collegiate team is going to make my time spent in college that much more exciting. I believe I have something to offer to the right college and am hoping to find the right college who has something to offer to me. My goal is to make this a win-win for everyone!
Off the court I was elected and am now serving as a Freshman Class Officer in the Leadership Program. The Leadership Program acceptance rate was only 3%. Officer placement was 1%. I represent that 1%. Also, in middle school I served on the student body officer team and was an 8th grade leadership student.
On the court, I was elected by my teammates this year to be captain of our 15 1s club VB team, having only spent three months with this competitive club that is new to me this season. On my High School Team I was one of only two Freshman to make the Varsity team, and we won the Div III California State Championship this year! This was our High School's first state Championship ever! I was also the ONLY underclassman to start on the Varsity team.
My parents and older brothers always taught me that it is important to keep my mind and body healthy! "Healthy athletic performance" can mean a lot of things to different people. For me, it means I am playing sports I love to play and not playing because I have to. It means I am playing as part of a team and that I am able to help my teammates and I know I have teammates that want to help me so we can all succeed. It also means that I must always take care of my class work and focus on my academics. My education is what will help determine what I do with my life. So I do not have much time for things that do not help me grow mentally, physically, or religiously. I have fun with friends, but I just don't like to waste time!! As long as I continue to do these things, I think I will be a great student-athlete in college!
I stay involved in my local community in a couple of different ways. Because I am just a Freshman and the first semester was so busy with school work, Volleyball, and Leadership, I did not have as much time as I would have liked to dedicate time to community service. In the past I have focussed a lot on fundraising for our local music and arts programs in the elementary and middle schools. The schools just don't have the money needed. So I help out by making phone calls, sending emails and letters, and knocking on doors asking people to contribute money to our programs.
I am very excited because I just volunteered to become an assistant Volleyball coach for our community Recreation Sports League. I start in a couple of weeks and it will be very busy, but I will get a chance to work with young kids and cannot wait to get started! This was how I got introduced to volleyball and I want to be able to teach some young girls just like someone taught me.
