Volleyball has impacted me in many ways, one is that I finally found a sport I enjoy that has also helped me gain self esteem. I no longer feel as self as I was when wearing shorts in public. I didn't expect myself to come this far either such as making a team or actually getting good at it. Volleyball makes me feel proud of myself when I'm put to use at something and could be relied on. Of course I'm going to miss some balls but it only pushes me to do better and try harder.
