LISTEN: Michigan State Student Discovers Her Home In Club Volleyball

Twitter: MSU Club Volleyball (@msuwcvb)

It hasn’t been easy for Ella Cunningham to feel like she fit in – until she got to MSU.

Playing volleyball and being the only person of color on your team in high school is no easy task.

I felt left out, like I didn’t belong.

Until I came to MSU and made the women’s club volleyball team. I met the best friends of my life there who supported and encouraged me to be the best person I can be.

The team and the program are the reason I am who I am today, and it shaped my entire college experience. 

I wouldn’t trade anything in the world for my time in the MSU Women’s Club Volleyball program, it means everything to me.

Now as I graduate, I want to share my journey:
