After a few months in Argentina gathering documents and other paperwork I had to make a decision about whether to start working or giving it a try at becoming a "professional" volleyball player.
The life of the student-athlete
"There is no need to over power when you can out smart."
From my time at Mason, what I take with me more than anything else, is the learning experience of having to practice, live, and share most of the hours in a day with people from so many different places. Having to share everything with people from different cultures and backgrounds and sometimes, even another point of view on volleyball, made the experience more exciting.

During the XXVII South American Championship for club teams in Cochabamba, Bolivia, the President of Macae Sports, a youth club just outside of Rio di Janeiro, invited me to join the club's U17 (infanto-juvenil) and U20 (juvenil) teams.
How it all began
I started playing volleyball in 1991 when I was 9 years-old. The year after I was already competing and federated for Club Ciudad de Buenos Aires (CCBA). During my six years in "Ciudad" (they way the club was called) I played dozens of minivolley tournaments in my first 2 years and started in the U14 (Infantiles) team already when I was 12.
We won many minivolley tournaments and the U14 (Infantiles) Championship of the Metropolitan Federation of the City of Buenos Aires.
