Best thing about playing collegiate volleyball:
"The best thing about playing collegiate volleyball is of course meeting a new team, and becoming friends with every single one of them. Another thing I love about collegiate volleyball is the mental toughness we are all gaining. During high school volleyball, you think you have been through it all, but you get to college and everything you thought was hard in high school becomes a walk in the park! I like to look back and see that I have improved both mentally and physically."
Advice for current TAV Houston players:
"The advice I would give to you is to not shut any doors that have a possibility of being reopened throughout the recruiting process. Don't get down on yourself and think you can't play college volleyball. There will be an option for you...just trust the process."
