My parents inspire me the most and they support me doing everything I want to do. I was born and raised in China, and I moved here in high school. My first language is Chinese. I am the only child in my family. My most memorable volleyball moments are when my high school team beat Annie wright last year on their senior night, when we played at state in my freshman year, and whenever I make a block this year! After college, I see myself going to graduate school for PT or orthopedics. Thank you to my mother!!! She traveled with me to all the places and recorded many videos of me when I was playing a game.
Inspirational Quote: Never make yourself feel regret – my Dad
Be really careful to not injure yourself during practices and games.
I’m inspired by my brother, because he fights a battle every day and always puts a smile on his face and others even when times are hard. Some things about me that most people don’t know are I have my german shepard that is my best friend, I was born at 13 lbs., and I did gymnastics my whole life until volleyball. Taking our rivals Peninsula High School to 5 sets, going to state and nationals, all the friendships I’ve made are some of my most memorable volleyball moments. In 5 years, I see myself finishing college. I want to thank my parents, and both high school and club coaches!
Inspirational Quote: Success doesn’t come to you, you go to it – Marva Collins
Don’t let your negative thoughts get the best of you!
My high school coach inspires me the most to push myself and work hard for what you want because nothing comes easy with a weak mindset. I love when I can make other people smile. My most memorable volleyball moments are pregame dances, making new friends and bonds, and the Halloween practice this year. I see myself hopefully become a nurse and starting a family in five years. Thank you to my parents, especially my mom for always coming to my games and sitting there on those hard bleachers or chairs for hour and hours just to support me playing the sport I love, and I was to thank my dad even though he couldn’t make it to all my game it still meant a lot.

Something most people don’t know about me is…I’m very humble and passionate about the things that I love!

Some advice I’d give to younger players is …don’t let people tell you that you can’t play a certain position even if it’s a coach or your parents, if you want to play that position train hard and don’t give up. give your heart to what you’re most passionate about
I’d like to thank my parents and my coaches but overall, I’d like to give praise and thanks to God, I wouldn’t have my talent without him, and he has given me this opportunity to further my athletic and academic career!

Some advice I’d give to younger players is reach out to college coaches the earliest you can!
I would like to thank my coaches over the past few years at Puget Sound, for the support and most of all being patient with me.

While my coaches had patience with me, I have build up those skills and am now continuing my love for volleyball in college!
