My objective is to combine my future education and sporting abilities. I am really motivated to play volleyball in the USA, because it is the right place to do so as a student-athlete. I have a 4.0 GPA, which I believe will help me to excel not only on the field, but in the classroom.

What makes you different
I am a setter and this is really specific position. I have some advantages, because I can not only set the ball and make a defense but I am really good at blocking (my height really helps) and serving two different types of serve on a very good level - float and jump serve.
I am a natural leader and that quality helps me to motivate and organize my team to compete at the highest level. I am a really hard working person and passionate about the things I am keen on. So usually I stay and work extra hours in the sports hall to improve my volleyball skills.
Having good grades and playing in the volleyball team is really difficult but for me it is easy because I am very good in managing my time.
Why do you want to compete in college?
Volleyball is my true passion and the thing that I can’t live without. When I am playing volleyball I feel in my element. The level of US college volleyball is really good and I am sure that it would help me to develop my volleyball skills and would help to achieve my main aim (to become professional volleyball player on the highest level). But the education is also very important for me and I want to be as well educated as possible. It is very important to do the things you enjoy the most and that is why I want to study and play volleyball in the USA. This is the only and the perfect place where I can combine them both.
My college goals are connected with the volleyball and my education. First of all, I want to help the team I will represent win the championship at least one time during my stay. Secondly, It will be awesome if I have honors like being in the All-America first team. Also I want to have good grades and good education that I will use after finishing my career.
Volleyball and life Goals?
My life goal is to play volleyball professionally and to make my living with that. I want to have family and after I finish my career I want to be good financially and to continue making a living with the education I get from an American University.
Anything else we should know?
From the age of 5 to 11 I was very good in swimming. I have a lot of hobbies like cycling and skiing.
