Describe how you work in a team with your partners.

I work well with my teammates and enjoy taking a leadership role.

Athletic highlights and how you felt when you received them. 

I was MVP of my team last year and team Captain.  Even though it was a tough year playing on the B team, I was given the chance to work on my leadership skills and develop skills that were important off the court.

I had an opportunity to compete at the Ontario Summer Games.  I was able to battle through an injury and enjoyed the excitement of a multi sport competition

Team Ontario Regional program gave me confidence both on and off the court so I saw myself develop in a well rounded player

Who are your role models and why?

Scottie Pippen is one of my favourite role models because he always was such a hard worker and stood up for himself, took care of his family and most importantly he did not need the spotlight to succeed.

Academic highlights and how you felt when you received them. 

  1. Winning the French award in Junior High school
  2. Taking a Grade 9 Math credit in Grade 8
  3. Published twice in Grade 7 for a short story and a drawing*

*I was chosen out of hundreds kids to be published because my story was one of the best. The story was about a group of kids who try to find the main child’s parents that went missing. The story was based off of an art piece.

What program would you like to study in school?

I would like to study Biology as I am interested in Sport Medicine

How do you envision your school life in college/university?

I envision myself as being hard working, self motivated, driven to meet my goals and very busy but loving every minute of it!

 

2020 Volleyball Schedule:

DUE TO COVID-19 ALL TOURNAMENTS POSTPONED 

 

 

 

My love for volleyball started in grade 4 when a friend asked me to try out for the school team with her. I made the school team and started practicing daily, going to camps over holidays, and playing house league. That year we won the City Championships for our division (2014). I played for my school every year they had a team (only three years) and we won city championships twice. I started playing rep volleyball for Mountain Volleyball Club (MVC) on an 11U team, playing up in 12U. At this time I also began to run provincial track for Stoney Creek Athletics and Monte Cristo Track Club. As a sprinter, I ran 200m and shorter. I also ran in the 4×100 relays, which we constantly medaled in. Balancing track and volleyball was always hard and both sports took a toll on my body. Eventually, I gave up one sport to benefit my health and I chose track to focus on volleyball in 2019. 

In 14U you start to specialize in a position and I have always been a setter, my secondary position being a right side. My last year at MVC, I played on the second team. There I was voted captain and never left the court.  In that year, I benefited tremendously as I gained much needed confidence in my game and found my voice becoming a leader of the team. I stayed at MVC for four years until I decided to switch for 15U. 

In 15U, I switched clubs and came to Smash Raiders Volleyball Club (SRVC). I played as the starting setter and devoted many hours to improving my overall game.. I am known to be a driven athlete and am constantly in the gym putting in the work. With Covid19 cutting our season short, we finished ranked 7th in the province. During quarantine I stayed active doing workouts that were provided by my club as well as a workout program specifically made for me and did lots of grass training until we could move back inside. I have stayed at SRVC again this year and was voted co-captain. This year I also practiced with the 18U team at my club, for every practice and scrimmage they had. Although we have not played much, I am still the starting setter on my team (or starting right side as we run a 6-2). Covid has changed the way the season looks this year but I am improving and having loads of fun. I can not wait to see where my volleyball career takes me!
