I'm natural from Sabadell, a city 10 miles away from Barcelona (Spain). I speak fluently Catalan, Spanish and English. I speak some French. I understand some basis of Italian, German and Portuguesse. I've been taught since I am little in the culture of the hard-work, commitment, patience and never stop trying. I am conscious of my limits but I never stop pushing through to be a better student, athlete and person for making of this a better world.

Personal Highlights

I'm natural from Sabadell, a city nearby Barcelona in Spain.
I started at the age of 6 with sports. I played waterpolo for 10 years for Club Natació Sabadell (the institution with the most active club members throughout Europe and with most Olympic Athletes on the 2012 London Olympic Games) accumulating up to 7 Catalan Leagues, 1 Spanish National Championship, two times 3rd placed in the Spanish National Championship and a 4th place in the same competition.
Despite of the huge amount of time spent on that sport, I also played hockey and tennis with a few Club MVP titles.
Finishing the 2009-2010 season with a 4th place in the Nationals, switching sport seemed a good challenge so I started playing beach-volleyball over the summer. The sport called my attention so I started playing indoor volleyball the same season under the coaching of Kiku Rodriguez and Manolis Dedes in the same Club where I was playing waterpolo.
After a few practices they set me up as a middle. Position that I would defend for over two seasons getting two 2nd places in the Catalan championship, a 12th in the Spanish Championship and a 21st in the same Championship.

After this last one, I decided to move to the US where my father was living since January to begin my senior year in the Evanston Township High School. Meeting coach Mc Dermott was one of my first activities and he asked me to try out in his club (Convoy) in the 18s section.
Starting the season as a right-side, with some rotations as a receiver due to my agility, speed and mobility.

Additional Questions:
Why do you want to be recruited to play sports in college?

Athletes are often leaders on and off the field. Please provide one example of how you have demonstrated leadership in both areas.

Usually I try to pump up my team-mates on and off the athletic facilities. Athletics are a good way to connect with people and create long and lasting relationships but those relationships are there because there has to be a sense of unity and togetherness predominant.

I do my best for the team and try to be an example but I also go to people. My out-going character makes me easy to talk despite of my often serious face; that means that you might see me with "poker-face" but I am always there and every time I see someone who is sad or spacing out I do my best to help them over-come their problems, listening and talking.

Language can be a great friend-maker so I am always trying to learn new languages to be closer to my partners, mates and friends and help them always. No matter what. Athletics and academics. This characteristic brought me to decide that, one day, I would be a psychologist.

Please explain how you pursue "healthy athletic performance" as a student-athlete.

In my culture, the Spanish, the use of alcohol is quite extended but I have never been involved on it. Farther than a glass of champagne on some holiday, I do not drink.

Smoking is socially accepted in Spain but being an athlete helped me resist the temptation and I ended up helping some friends who were quite addicted to it using always words, confidence and friendship as tools.

I have never done any drugs and I have kept two people who were friends of friends of mine to quit. Perseverance is always the key to success.

Please describe how you are involved in service in your community and why these efforts are important to you.

In Spain I didn't have much time to volunteer regularly but I mostly used my free time to help out in child-care programs provided by the City Hall or particulars. I also took a course of formation in the initiation to athletic activities for children and teenagers what actually helped me understand people from all ages.

I was listed, as well, for senior care programs through the City Hall too and I made some really nice friendship with the elder. Listening to them makes one grow as a human being and culturally.

After a long time thinking over I had my first practice in the swimming pool. I got scouted after 25min of scrimage to play for North Beach. Today I have my first game in the US. Wish me luck!
