What/who inspired you to play volleyball? My sister started playing it
during her second year of high school, so then she pushed me to try the sport and once I
did, I fell in love with it.
Describe yourself – I describe myself as an aggressive player who will
always push and look after my teammates. When it comes to learning something new, I
don’t mess around, I give it my full attention and always go all out.
What do you think your biggest contribution to the team is? Right
now would be that since I’m out for the first season is being there at every practice and
game showing my full support. Then when I come back, I’ll give it all I got just like the
rest of the team does.
Goals: To come back stronger after my surgery, continue to play
volleyball after pierce, and study as hard as I can to become a dermatologist.
Why did you choose to play for Pierce College?I chose to play at
Pierce because the coach is amazing and really pushes you to the limit to make you as
good as you can be. He’s very discipline, inspiring, and definitely a challenge.
