“I was so scared to apply for my current job because I thought it was too much of a risk,” said Emily, “I was unhappy at my job but I just figured I had to stick it out.”

Emily, 26, graduated from Kendall College with a degree in interior design. “Grand Rapids was a happy accident,” she said, “It just so happened that Grand Rapids had 3 of the largest furniture companies, which is what I wanted to work in.”

To Emily, however, complete happiness didn’t come immediately. “I was working for a small company in Grand Rapids that I hated. I had heard from someone there about a sports league called GRSSC,” she said. “I then signed up as a free agent for volleyball. I knew absolutely no one. I remember sitting in the parking lot beforehand and I called my dad crying because I was so scared,” she continued, “he reassured me everything was going to be okay, so I went.”

Once Emily started to play for GRSSC, she continued to love it more and more. “The club started to help me build confidence in myself. I met some of my closest friends there,” said Emily.

“I remember when I first applied for my current job, I wasn’t qualified whatsoever,” she said, “but my friends at GRSSC knew how much I hated my current job and they pushed me to apply. Once I realized I had friends in my corner, taking risks weren’t so scary. I applied for the job and got it.”

Emily now works at Haworth in Holland as a product application specialist. “I love my job now,” said Emily, “my friends at GRSSC were my cheerleaders.” Emily now plays as a substitute, but hopes to come back in the near future with her boyfriend. “I love the club. I miss it every day,” Emily continued, “go play, meet people, and see what happens.”

Good luck to you, Emily. We’re so proud to have you in our club!
