Interview

What makes you different

It will definitely be my understanding of the game and how I play. I always try to motivate and cheer up my teammates so we can all be concentrated enough. I always try to understand the situation that I am in so I can always score with the smartest and easiest way . I don't think that a Middle Blocker always have to make a huge and super strong kill , I am a fan of tipping wisely and I found it way smarter than killing the ball.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I believe, that playing college volleyball in US will help me to achieve my dream of becoming professional volleyball player in the future. The US college system is unique and because I'm a good student I can finish my studies while playing without a problem.

College goals

I would like to study Sports Management and finish my Degree on time and with very good grades.

Volleyball and life Goals?

After successfully finishing my education I would like to play Pro volleyball as long as I can.

Anything else we should know?

I like music, love animals and in my free time I like to draw.
