We are so proud to introduce you to Celeste Plak! This amazing girl is one of the players of the Dutch Female Volleyball team and she is gonna tell all about being a professional Fit Girl.
1. Why do you like writing for #FITGIRLCODE
I want to give other Fit Girls a peek into my life; how beautiful it can be, but also how tough it can be sometimes.
2. How did your volleyball adventure start?
When I was six years old I started playing volleyball at the local club in my town Tuitjenhorn. Sometimes I participated during selection days, but I never got selected. That changed when I got invited to the Dutch Junior Youth team on my 13th birthday. At first, I didn’t wanna go, but after many discussions I agreed to go. Soon I realized that this wasn’t for me so I quit. After a few months rest, my coach came to visit me and asked me if I wanted to come back. I said yes and since then I really enjoyed myself and never felt unhappy about my decision again.
3. How do you combine your sport career with a ‘normal’ social life?
When I was 14 I started living at sport centre Papendal, I lost contact with a lot of ‘friends’. The ones that stuck with me aren’t that many, but I’m okay with that. At least this way I can spend the time I have with my family.
4. What would you like to achieve in your sport career?
Very cliché, but I’d like to go to the Olympics. And beside that, I just hope people enjoy watching my game and maybe even get inspired.
