Volleyball Voices: 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.
Volleyball Voices: 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.
Volleyball Voices: 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
Volleyball Voices: 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
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.
