After 8 months and a lot of adventures, I am finally heading home after my 5th season as a professional volleyball player! I can’t say enough about the amazing group of people I called my family these past months. Thank you for making my season in Germany unforgettable! 🐺Früchte die Wölfe!🐺#vfbsuhl #chickensigningoff🐓
