Having a love for volleyball, Marlene Garcia, 10, hopes to pursue her passion and continue to play later on in life. “When I started playing I never knew I would love the sport as much as I do; now and every time I go out there and play I feel like I have accomplished something,”Garcia said. “It’s always been a passion of mine. No one really believed in me but I still believed in myself and that I could do anything I put my mind to.”
