“I grew up playing various sports, but volleyball has always been my favorite. My dad and older sisters were always willing to play with me, fueling my desire to compete at a higher level. I was fortunate to have a great high school coach who helped increase my volleyball IQ, while helping me grow to love the game.

Volleyball is more than a game; it has allowed me to travel to many places and meet so many different people. Becoming a college athlete provided me with a built-in family and I am grateful for the many learning opportunities in leadership development while serving as team captain for the last 4 years. I know these experiences will serve me well as I transition into a classroom teacher next fall.” #humansofTMU

-Abby Maxwell, TMU senior education major
