I earned the Mustang Award my sophomore year which is a local award for overall volleyball excellence as well as academics and attitude on and off the court. Freshmen year I was awarded Honorable Mention All-Conference and my sophomore year I made Second Team All-Conference.
I have been a starting varsity player since my freshmen year.
I have been playing volleyball since 6th grade. Each year I like it even more. I played basketball in middle school. My freshmen year I played softball. My sophomore year I played on a club team. Playing club improved my skills amazingly. In club I hit off the right side and I loved it! Education is very important to me and I aim to get all A's this year. Doing anything to the best of my ability is the thing I strive for the most.
Being the setter for my school volleyball team I have to step up and be a leader. I have been a leader that way by talking to my team during and in-between rallies. I help keep our team from getting down on ourselves and each other. I have also been a leader off the court when I organize dances for my class at our school.
I try to stay in-shape year round to make me better for each year's volleyball season. During the off-season I still stay active by attending volleyball camps and clinics. Also I run track to stay in-shape. When they are not available I still stay active by running, lifting weights, hiking, and swimming. Not only do I stay active year-round, but I try to eat as healthy as I can especially during season. I never drink pop or energy drinks. I rarely eat junk food such as chips, sweets and candies. Although I do love some junk food, I know eating healthy is much more important.
I have done many service projects throughout my life to help my community. One of the more meaningful service projects I have done was this year out student council had breakfast with veterans from our area for Veteran's Day. Each student council member also had to interview a veteran and speak for him at our school's assembly. That experience opened my eyes and it made me so much more gracious for what I have. I also helped a local restaurant with a bingo night they had; I helped collect the money and pass out the bingo boards. I am involved in student council at my school and every fall we do a highway clean-up; we picked up trash off the highway. It is really important to help serve your community because its a terrific way to give back to your community, also it helps bring communities closer and helps you feel apart of it.
