Recruit Profile
Coachable, versatile, determined, and hard-working athlete and student. I take initiative in action and voice, and I always seek to learn and change in order to progress.

I started playing indoor volleyball at 10, and have been seriously playing beach volleyball for about two years. I began my beach training with AVP Metro in NYC during the summer of 2019, and this past summer (2020) I trained in Florida with Power Volleyball Academy. Since returning to New York, I have been training with Optimum Beach NY Volleyball, and Stars and Stripes Beach Volleyball Club. Freshman year, I was the starting middle blocker of my high school varsity volleyball team, and during my sophomore year I helped my team win the 2019-20 City Championships. Freshman year, I also played as the only girl on my school's JV baseball team, and was on the Varsity Baseball team my sophomore year before our season was cut short due to COVID-19. This upcoming year, I am a captain of my school volleyball team, and am excited to lead us to another championship.

I compete regularly in AVP Junior and Women's Open tournaments at Point Pleasant (NJ), the Highline Arena (NJ), Hickory Point (FL), and Clearwater Beach (FL). I finished 5th overall in AVP Nationals, and won AVP Athlete of the Week.

Academically, I have maintained a 4.3-4.5 GPA (weighted average). I have completed 4 AP courses and scored a 3 or higher on each exam: World History (4), US History (4), English Language & Composition (5), and Art History (3). I am a sports section editor and staff reporter for my school's newspaper, a staff reporter for the student-led online magazine, Teens for Teens Health, and I write and make art for the student-lead magazine, NYC Periphery Magazine. I am a Baseball For All Captain; Baseball for All is an organization that advocates and empowers girls in baseball, because so many are discouraged from it due to the heavy male presence and masculine culture surrounding the sport. I am a member of Bronx Science's Project Fire, and a staff member of the Bronx Science Free to Be We Magazine, organized by Project Fire. I am also a part of the Bronx Science Student Diversity Committee, and the 2021-2022 Senior Council. In my spare time, I enjoy writing stories and poetry, exercising, wholesome cooking and baking, art, food photography, spending time in nature with friends and family, and educating myself through reading and enrichment classes.
