Personal Statement

Playing as a Freshman and Sophomore on my high school team has really given me the confidence and skills that I can use throughout my entire life. It was an amazing experience playing in the high pressure atmosphere that is the Regional Volleyball Tournament. Our school has made it to the Regional Finals the last four years in a row. I hope that in my next couple years of being on this high school team, that I can use my skills and mental toughness to make it to the State Tournament.

Playing on a USA volleyball team for the last five years has given me leadership and fundamental skills I can use throughout my entire volleyball career. I am very fortunate that the Iowa Rockets club has given me many opportunities to show everyone what I am capable of.  I have played in three very competitive, high pressure Junior National Championships, and that has allowed me to play at a higher level of competition. I am a four-sport athlete and am willing to do extra, whether it's lifting or training, to get me to my full potential. Not only do I have a good work ethic in volleyball, but in my academics as well. I want to play at a college that allows me to play at my level in volleyball, while achieving a valuable education.

Playing sports has given me the confidence in myself to be comfortable under pressure. Between club and school, I have had the experience in playing all the positions on the court. I am willing to fill whatever role the team needs to be successful. I know that I will give everything I have to each and every team I am a part of and will be a great leader on your team.
