2015 All Conference Honorable Mention
Of all the sports I have participated in over the years, volleyball has by far been my favorite. I have a deep passion for this sport. Pre and post season, I figuratively eat, sleep, and live it. It is this love for the sport that compels me to possibly pursue a chance to play at a collegiate level. Regardless if I don't make a college team, I'm definitely playing volleyball at some type of level while in college.
My senior year of volleyball I was voted by my teammates to be the 2016 varsity captain. This was a great honor for me: it was a title I've been aspiring to be given since I was a freshman. On the court, I am a positive motivator. It is this characteristic trait that I have been able to apply in other aspects of my life besides athletics. In school, I use my optimism to push my peers in academics as well. Not only is it imperative that you show leadership qualities on the court, but it's equally if not more important, that you inspire your friends/teammates in other areas of their lives as well.
This year especially, I've been very conscientious of being healthy. I took my training to the "next level" my senior year, and I understood that by doing that, I'd have to change my eating habits. Before and after matches, I'm always mindful of what I put into my body. As of now, I'm focused on becoming more toned and having even more endurance.
I am highly involved in my community. Not only do I participate in high school athletics, but I'm also an active member in multiple school clubs. From the Athletic Leadership Council (ALC), to the National Honor Society (NHS), to being apart of the high school yearbook staff, these clubs are founded to give back to the small town of Cedar Springs, Michigan. One example of this would be my participation in Red Hawks Kids Club while in ALC. In this weekly event, it is my responsibility to teach younger students how to be a model "Red Hawk" (my school's mascot). This opportunity is especially very dear to my heart. It's very rewarding seeing how big of an impact I can make on a small child's life. Something so simple as tracing a kid’s hand with a bright red crayon could make their day, and they’d run off the bus rambling to their parents about it for hours about the new friend they made. It is small volunteer work such as Red Hawks Kids Club that enlighten me on how crucial it is to give back to your community so you could make a difference.
