Hey Cougar fans!
I can’t believe my last season as a cougar is finished. Although, there were so many memories made here that I’ll never forget; whether that be the friendships, bus rides on the cougar cruiser, or even just the hard-fought games. It sure has been a ride, but sadly my volleyball career has come to an end. I could not be more thankful for the coaches that have put in the time and effort to help me to succeed as the player and person that I have become. I could not have done it without all of you! As for my professors, I couldn’t have asked for better ones for these first couple years of college. College is such a transition and these teachers made it so easy, especially with being an athlete.
Through these years, I saw myself grow tremendously, on and off the court. Along the way, I was able to coach club volleyball and attend FCA camp where I taught girls what I know, which was a blessing in disguise. I had the opportunity to teach younger girls the sport that I learned to love so much in hopes of them seeing the opportunities it can bring. It will be a transition going from playing volleyball every day to only playing when I get the chance. From my experience at ICC I know it’ll only benefit my future endeavors and for that I am so thankful.
As for next semester, I will be transferring to the University of Iowa where I will major in communication with a minor in public relations along with a certificate in event planning. Eventually, once I’m done with school I hope to come back to become an event planner around the central Illinois area. I’m very excited to start my journey and see where it takes me!
Lastly, I want to thank my family and friends for the continual love & support, along with following me wherever I went & continue to go. As always… Go cougars!
