Being a part of the UC Davis volleyball team has helped me learn more about myself as a person. I have learned how to push myself and what my limits, strengths and weaknesses are. Most importantly, it has helped me grow as an individual every single day.
Being a part of the UC Davis track team has helped me so much with learning time management. With practice six days a week, weights three days a week and class four days a week, I have learned how to make time for studying, rehabbing my body and even leisure and social time. In terms of leadership, I have learned that everyone really has the ability to be a leader. Leadership is the ability to see the leader in everyone and truly learn from others who have a lot of knowledge to share.
Being a part of intramural sports has helped me build relationships, stay in shape and make UC Davis feel like home and a place where I can thrive. Playing sports gives me an outlet to clear my mind and not worry about school for a time. This gives me something to look forward to after classes. My advice to incoming athletes is just because you are no longer playing intercollegiate athletics doesnâ€™t mean you canâ€™t continue playing the sports you love.
