Volleyball.


Improve Your Volleyball: What makes you special?


Playing here in the states, my upbringing in New Zealand and

different culture sure does add something special to our special team!


Improve Your Volleyball: What accessories and/or equipment help you play your best?


Reviewing and evaluating film certainly is a factor in me playing my

best.

 




Improve Your Volleyball: What pregame habits, rituals, or superstitions do you have to do before every game?


Before each game I usually listen to music and try to focus and

visualize what I need to do in the game.


Improve Your Volleyball: Who or what inspires you to play well in each match that you play in?


My parents definitely inspire me to play well, as I want to do well

because of all they have sacrificed to get me to this point in my life.


My teammates also influence me, as I have to, and want to play well

in order for the team to succeed.
