how they were apart of the team.

she loves to go shopping, watch all types of tutorial videos on Youtube, and she especially loves to go on outings with her family. 

Valeria is a hard worker both at practices and at games, she is always giving 110% even when her efforts are not recognized. She has never missed a practice and is always ready to help her teammates and coaches in any way she can.
