There are people in each of our lives that play a big role in who we become. They help shape us and have an influence on our life, whether they realize it or not. Addy Foster says her role models are members of her family.
“My grandparents are definitely role models for me to look up to,” she said. “They have always been there and supported me, no matter what I was doing or going through. I wear the number five in honor of my Papa.”
Foster is a sophomore at Derby High School. She plays libero on the volleyball team, while on the softball field, she plays in the outfield. She said that during her career, she has had some memorable moments, but that there is one memory that stands out as her favorite.
“Winning substate was an amazing feeling,” she said. “Having an opportunity to help the senior class reach their goals was an amazing experience. Everyone was so excited and it showed that our hard work paid off. Knowing the feeling of winning substate will motivate me going forward.”
This season, Foster has high hopes for her team this season.
“I’m excited for the season and I hope to build off of last year,” she said. “We are young with experience but have some great leadership from the seniors and coach Kraus.”
