  • On the importance of equality in volleyball"I think I try to promote equality in volleyball by interacting with all kinds of fans, interacting with other teams, no matter who they are, where they come from, what their story is. I love to interact, take photos, sign autographs, and talk with them and hopefully through that we can grow the sport of volleyball and make sure that everyone playing is comfortable and competing out there."
