Improve Your Volleyball: What makes you special?

My friends and family are what make me special. They have given me

nothing but courage and positive support that created opportunity

after opportunity for me.  

Improve Your Volleyball: What accessories and/or equipment

help you play your best?


My ankle braces keep me balanced and safe from injuries. Also, I can

never have enough bobby pins to keep my hair out of my face.

Improve Your Volleyball: What pregame habits, rituals, or

superstitions do you have to do before every game?


Along with dancing in the locker room and a pep up speech from the

coach, before every game I listen to my iPod that is set to shuffle and

also I study my scouting report of our opponent.

I learned at a young age that superstitions don’t hold true

for me. 

Improve Your Volleyball: Who or what inspires you to play well in

each volleyball match that you play?


My mom, dad, and brother inspire me to play my best and hardest in

each game.

My parents have supported me through everything that I have been

through. My older brother is another role model that I look up to when

it comes to volleyball and even in everyday life.

His confidence, strength, and energy he shows on the court come

from playing with nothing but heart. As a volleyball player, I think

heart is the most essential attribute to any game.
