I have been playing Volleyball since 7th grade, The reason I started is because I used to sit and watch my father practice and coaching our local team. Since then I wanted to play volleyball.
Ever since I started I enjoy every moment of it, and I discovered the "competitive" world of sport. When we practice really hard, people ask me why I keep doing it, wake up in the morning, go to class, and then practice hard for 4 hours, and the reason it that there is nothing better than the feeling that you have after you finish a really hard practice, when it's so hard doing the practice and you want to quit, but you don’t do it and there is nothing more Rewarding than the emotions that you have you know you worked so hard so we will play better the day after it.
I have started to compete Internationally four years ago, And I remember the first game that we have in Slovakia and we were wearing the ISRAEL national team shirts, and before the game the National anthem is playing and we sing in Hebrew in a different country and all that is going throws your mind that you are one out of millions people and you represent your country and a big smile is on your face. And we just looked at each other and just lived that moment and let it sign in our memories.
When we come back to Israel and everyone is waiting for us with Israel's flags and cheering us even in the times that we lost. Make you be so proud of your country and who you are.
So this is the Reason I play volleyball and represent my country , and there is nothing more deep for me then wearing my country national shirts with the flag and the "ISRAEL" on the back.
I am thankful that I have the chance to do it and to live it.
