What/who inspired you to play volleyball? My sister inspired me to play volleyball. She was the first one who started playing in high school, so then she asked me to try it out for myself and once I did, I fell in love with the sport.
Describe yourself: I am a hard working person. I like pushing and challenging myself to new things. I am a fun person to be around and get along with anyone.
What do you think your biggest contribution to the team is? I feel that my biggest contribution to the team is playing hard and going hard all the time because I feel that if my teammates see that example of our culture in the gym, they would want to do the same thing.
Goals: Being able to be the best that I can be and pushing myself to the highest limit in hopes to continue my volleyball career and being able to pursue a career in the medical field.
Favorite saying or quote: “Sports don’t build character, they reveal it.”
Why did you choose to play for pierce? I chose to play at pierce because the coach and environment here in this gym is definitely a challenge. I feel that playing here will boost my game tremendously and give me so many opportunities. I've known Nabil for a while and I know he pushes everyone to there maximum limit and I trust him to do that with me.
