Volleyball: Uniting as one

Volleyball is sport people around the world love to watch and play. I served my first volleyball at the age of 7. Each skill I mastered brought feelings of accomplishment and happiness. Since then, the sport has been a way for me to escape from my busy lifestyle, and put all my energy and focus into something I truly love. It provides me with a feeling of relaxation. Although I no longer play volleyball competitively, I love to spend my time on the sand volleyball courts or watching the USA volleyball team play in the Olympics. I believe this sport brings together many different cultures and people. For example, at Nationals my team would play teams from around the world such as Puerto Rico or Mexico. Our passion allowed us to forget the differences between our cultures and come together as one to play the sport we all love.
