About ME

My favorite color is purple.  I’m inspired by my Mom because she’s motivated me and pushed my limits both academically and physically.  Something about me that most people don’t know is I was a competitive ice skater for 8 years and got offers to work with Olympic coaches.  In 5 years, I see myself getting my master’s degree in psychology.  I’d like to thank my school volleyball coach.

Advice for our younger players

To work and push yourself outside the volleyball court in order to maintain your strength. Also, to keep a positive mindset so volleyball still is a sport of enjoyment.
