About Me

My mom inspires me because she is hardworking and driven. Always doing something even if she’s tired or doesn’t want to.  Something about me that most people don’t know is I like to diamond paint and am in the middle of a really big project. In 5 years I see myself in law school stressed out.  Thank you to my parents and sisters! Day ones always being there for me throughout my school/club volleyball career!  Some of my most memorable volleyball moments were the Oregon tournament and making TikTok’s with Celia, Krista and Taty. Also learning the Selena Gomez choreo with Ava.
