Gi­ant role model

Hawaii Tribune Herald - - SPORTS -

Ayap may go down in BIIF vol­ley­ball his­tory as the short­est to ever earn a col­lege schol­ar­ship, but she’ll be re­mem­bered for her grat­i­tude, es­pe­cially for any­one who has touched her life.

“Both of my par­ents (Amos Ayap and Dori Hoohuli) have been a huge in­flu­ence on me. They are my No. 1 sup­port­ers,” Ayap said. “They al­ways en­cour­age me to set higher goals be­cause I know I can achieve them. With­out them, I wouldn’t be the per­son I am to­day. My par­ents are vol­ley­ball play­ers as well al­though they’ve never played at the col­lege level.

“My younger brother Taunor is 10 years old, and I hope I am be­ing a role model for him be­cause I want him to fur­ther his ed­u­ca­tion as well.”
