"12 years I've dedicated my life to this sport. I've seen myself grow from the "athletic kid" to a skilled volleyball player. From a self-conscious girl to a proud, strong, young woman. Volleyball raised me through my youth, giving me everlasting friendships, life lessons, memorable experiences and the opportunity to travel across the world. I owe who I am today not only to those who believed in me and supported my journey but to those who doubted me and tried to bring me down along the way. You have been a driving force throughout my life, a voice I proudly challenge and use a source of motivation in pursuit of life. It has been a great 12 years volleyball, years I wouldn't change for anything. Weekends I wouldn't want to spend anywhere but surrounded by whistles, yelling, nets, volleyballs and the determination to be great. Thanks for the good times. See you on the court under the lights from the other side. Until we meet again..."
Live your passion :: Love on purpose
Aside from coming back from my ACL injury and being an All-American, having the opportunity to compete in my nation's colors and wear these three letters on the front of my chest while representing the USA A2 National Team at the 2010 Adult National Championship will always be the greatest moment of my career. All the early mornings and exhaustion well beyond worth it for this moment of recognition amongst the nation's best.
