About the athlete, Ella.
I am a grade 12 student at SKSS, and am a competitive volleyball player who plays at the Team BC level. Having been supported in my volleyball journey by the Kamloops Volleyball Association, it is important for me to be able to give back to our town’s athletic programs. Especially in a smaller town, finding a way to pursue my passion with limited resources has had its challenges, including how to access gear more affordably. I wanted to offer support to young athletes in my community; so, I founded the Volleyball Shoe Bank (VSB).
