Kulena Makalii - Las Vegas Volleyball club Vegas Volley

#10 Setter

Starting off as a child, I was motivated to play volleyball because people in my family would play in front of me. The biggest motivation that really pulled me toward the game of volleyball was my uncle. He may have only played all four years of high school, but he taught me most of the game and I later self-taught myself. As I pursued the game of volleyball, my first organized volleyball team was my freshman year of high school at Sierra Vista High School.
