People have always asked me why I play volleyball. They always ask “Why do you play volleyball? For fun? Thrill? Bored?” I always answer them by saying, “ I plan to be the best at volleyball and show everyone that I have what it takes to become a legend.” Then other questions of things such as “ You plan to be the best because why?” All I tell them is because in my eyes and my heart I strive to make it to the Olympics and play for the U.S. Every time I say this I am usually greeted by their laughter and mocking of me and my dreams. I have been laughed at and even told by teammates that I will never be able to become that great. As they criticize me it used to hurt a little then turn to anger where I would fight for everything I could to get better. Now they have changed my way of thinking from anger to fuel adding to my burning desire of becoming a great volleyball player and maybe even more. Many people would listen or read my dreams and say I’m a lost cause for my goals. These are dreams not my goals. My goals are different from many people. One of my goals is to become a great leader like so many of my coaches say I can become. I have my moments where I can lead my team through the fight of our season. Then other times I back down and stay in my own bubble. I want to be able to lead them when they need me because my coaches have told me the girls rally behind me when I do lead. Other goals of mine include being a coach. If I can’t become a great volleyball player I at least want to share my knowledge and wisdom with younger players who may have a better shot at the Olympics than me.
