Favourite Volleyball Moment:

My favourite volleyball moment was playing on Canada's Junior National Team summer of 2012. We went to the USA High performance tournament in Iowa. It was my first tournament in the states and my first experience playing against international teams. The best moment of all that was playing against Dominican Republic, they were such a tough team, unfortunately we lost in 5.

Career Life Goals:

Although I'm not too sure what I be when i grow up, I do know that I am interested in health sciences. Eventually when I get to University (Class of 2013) i will have a better idea.

I would like to get a scholarship and also play university volleyball.

After university, before I start my life career, I would like to play professional volleyball overseas; and also have the opportunity to play on the National Team.

When i get too old to play volleyball i will start my life career and coach volleyball teams.

5 Year Plan:
  • I would like to play for the Mavericks for another two years,
  • Finish High school and perhaps receive a sports scholarship,
  • Attend University and;
  • Work hard to make the Canadian National Team and Qualify to go to the Olympics.
