What/who inspired you to play volleyball? During middle school volleyball was my favorite sport out of the ones I played and one of my oldest friends convinced me to try out for her club team. After that, volleyball became more special and serious to me.
Describe yourself – I’m really quiet at first but once I enter my comfort zone I’m extremely weird and just myself. I don’t judge and I’m nice to everyone who is nice to me.
What do you think your biggest contribution to the team is? My biggest contribution to the team is that I’ll be supportive when it’s needed, I’m focused, and I have a lot of energy on and off the court.
Goals: My goals for college include having a 3.0 or higher GPA all four years, being recruited to play volleyball at UCSD or UCSB after Pierce, and to become a better player and teammate.
Why did you choose to play for Pierce College? I chose to play for Pierce because I wanted to be at a Junior College that was far enough away from home and some place where I knew I would become a better all around volleyball player.
