Who is your go-to music artist? 
I have a couple artist I listen to a lot right now.  They are Lil Uzi Vert, Rae Sremmurd, The Weekend and Migos.

Off-Season: Does it actually Exist or is it just a Myth?
It is a myth for me. Although I do more activities during the “off-season” period, I am still working towards being a better volleyball player year round. I am still playing whenever I get the chance and working out and staying active.

What motivated you to pursue Volleyball?
My parents are my motivation and inspiration for Volleyball.  To see the joy it gives them watching me play makes me happy.
