Volleyball Is My Substance
Leila (Kailua), 13
My substance is volleyball. From a young age I’ve always enjoyed playing volleyball. Since 1st grade, at my elementary school we were able to sign up for volleyball, which I did. Ever since then, I’ve been playing volleyball. A big part of loving something, is loving it through the hardships. When I was younger I obviously made a lot more mistakes, and had a hard time playing because I had a knee injury, but through all that, I kept going to become the player I am today. I just love everything about volleyball, from playing on the court and getting a nice hit, to finishing a game and all the joy on everyone faces.
