Volleyball (7+ years experience)
Although "volleyball player" technically isn't a job title, because of the skills that I learned and all of the time I have committed to it, I would consider it a job. Volleyball is a year long sport that I have been playing since 6th grade. School season would be from early August to October with practices everyday and games and tournaments every week and then club season would go from October to late July and would include tournaments every weekend and a National Tournament at the end of July.
Volleyball has taught me numerous skills such as leadership, teamwork, and responsibility. In high school and my final two years of club volleyball I was the Captain of my team. I learned how to speak up, be responsible, and lead my team.

So far I have only completed one semester of college at DePauw University but in my first semester I took on a challenging workload and excelled. I took Intro to Economics, Intro to Psychology, College Writing, and my seminar class: Of Apes and Forms. Along with balancing my classes I also was involved in ITAP and volleyball. I received a 3.38 and I am pleased with my performance for my first semester of college. Now I know the study techniques and the amount of hard work it takes to receive an A in a class so I am confident that my next semester will be even more successful.
I attended a private all girl high school from 7th grade to 12th. I earned a 3.83 cumulative GPA and got a 33 on my ACT, broken down as Science 36, Reading 36, Math 35 and English 26. I was also a member of the National Honor Society, National Society of High School Scholars, and the Academic Honor Roll all four years. I was president of Diversity Club and won the Theology Award, Art Award, and was the Honor Guard Recipient. At Villa, I also participated in Service Learning where I volunteered at Father Dempsey's Soup Kitchen, Howard Branch Elementary School, Linda Vista Elementary School, and VITAS Hospice Care. At each of these sites I was given a leadership position where I either worked with and tutored children, cooked for homeless men, filed information into computers, or made gifts for veterans.
