Five words you can use to describe yourself on the court.
Five words you can use to describe yourself off the court.
Describe how you work in a team with your partners.
My two main ideologies for working on a team with partners is kindness and constructive criticism. It is important to be kind in all settings, but specifically when you’re working with a team. It allows everyone to be comfortable with one another and allows everyone to play unified. Constructive criticism is also important in order to grow as people and as players. You can learn from each other that way, and continue to build and improve your skill.

Receiving any athletic recognition is incredibly rewarding, as it serves as evidence of all of the hard work that goes into training and competing. It makes me feel thankful for the opportunity to have trained with my coaches and teammates, and shows that I am on the right path to continue pursuing my goals.
What are your interests outside of sports? Why do you like them?
Outside of sports I am mostly interested in the arts. I love reading, writing, drawing, singing, songwriting, and pretty much any kind of creative outlet. Reading, writing, and drawing allows me to showcase my imagination. I love that you can create or enter any world of your choosing through these things. I also love singing, songwriting, and even just listening to music. I play the ukulele and am currently learning the guitar and piano. I have an interest in composing and performing. I love the adrenaline and the expression involved in each. Eventually, I would like to be an art curator, spending my time talking to artists from all around the world, analyzing their work, and putting together exhibits that mean something to people.
Who are your role models and why?
My biggest role model is my dad. I have found that being an athlete and also being interested in the arts is a unique combination that is hard to come by. However, my dad, just like me, also did both. He was a college athlete and also loved to write. He has always been my biggest supporter in both fields, encouraging me to keep drawing, singing and writing, as well as encouraging me to keep pursuing my dreams on the court. He is a now a coach in the USFL and has taught me all the things I know about leadership, time management, and being the best teammate I can be.
Involvement in other sports or extracurricular. Why is it important for you?
Involvement in other sports and extracurricular activities is important to me not only because I love the sense of community being involved creates, but also because I feel that it makes me a better volleyball player. The skills I learned in track and field such as proper running mechanics has helped my speed and stealth on the volleyball court. Being involved in school clubs such as Student Council, Athletic Council, and Debate Club have helped with my time management and have shown me new skills for working with my teammates cooperatively. I’ve become a more efficient person, a better teammate, and a more well-skilled player.

- 2020 Honour Roll

Academics are very important to me, especially because I would eventually like to earn a doctorate and those programs are very competitive. Knowing that my hard work is paying off is extremely rewarding to me, and I am always thankful for the teachers and classmates that helped me to reach that goal.
What program would you like to attend in school?
I would like to pursue a degree in Art History. I have always had a special interest in history, but especially fell in love with it during my American History class. I realized how much art and history have in common, each telling the story of the lives before us. I am open to pursuing other degrees such as History, Archaeology, or Museum Studies, anything that could be relevant to a future career as an art curator.
How do you envision your school life in college/university?
I am excited for so many aspects of the college/university experience. I envision myself making friends from all around the world, culturing myself with their stories and experiences as well as sharing mine. I am excited to be able to study topics I truly care about, learning about the things I have always been curious of. Mostly, I envision myself playing a high level of volleyball, training intensely and playing with some of the best players in the country and potentially from other countries.
