Describe how you work in a team with your partners.

Working in a team with a partner, I try to be very supportive and positive. I believe that it is very important to stay positive while on the court, especially when you’re down or make a bad play. I also like to build a relationship with my partner or team off the court. I’ve noticed that a strong friendship off the court makes for far better communication on the court. I’m always looking for ways to try and push my partner to make her the best she can be, and I’m always looking to learn and try new plays and new strategies.

Athletic highlights and how you felt when you received them:

I remember when my 13U indoor team won gold in a premier tournament I felt so proud of my whole team. It was satisfying to feel like our hard work had paid off. This moment was a very special moment for everyone on the team, and it definitely brought us all closer.

What are your interests outside of sports? Why do you like them?

My family and I love watersports in the summer. We like to wakeboard, ride seadoos, and hangout on the beach. In the winter I like to snowboard. I also have a passion for the piano, because I love music and how it has such an impact on your emotions and life.

Who are your role models and why?

My role models are my parents because they worked so hard to be where they are right now, and that motivates me to work super hard to achieve my goals. My other role model is Melissa Humana-Paredes. I loved watching her in the world championships and then the Olympics. She’s a tough player, and I’d love to play just like her.

Involvement in other sports or extracurricular. Why is it important for you?

In grade school I played basketball, soccer, badminton, cross country and track. In high school I play volleyball, badminton and track. I enoy the competition in sports, and I like the challenge of learning new skills. I also feel like it makes me a more well-rounded athlete.

Academic highlights and how you felt when you received them?

My goal for the longest time leading up to my grade 8 graduation was to have the highest average in my class. When I received the Scholastic Proficiency Award, which goes to the highest average, I was so honoured and proud because I saw all of my hard work paid off.

What program would you like to attend in school?

I would like tp pursue a degree in Law or Finance.

How do you envision your school life in college/university?

I expect to balance competing in volleyball and maintaining a high grade point average.
