Maria Alferova awarded Extra Effort from WMBD

Sophomore ICC Volleyball libero Maria Alferova was recognized as the Extra Effort Award Winner from WMBD 31’s Kurt Pegler this week!

“It’s great to see my hard work pay off,” Alferova said. “I’m definitely a futuristic-thinking person in accomplishing the goals I set out to do.”

Alferova, studying International Business, shares about her study abroad experience in Spain last spring along with her internships in the UK and a 2-week job shadow in the US Embassy in Africa. She speaks three languages and is hopeful to work at a US Embassy abroad one day.

“She is very driven with vision and goals already set coming out of high school to what she was doing,” ICC volleyball coach Sue Sinclair said. “Very focused and that has given her the opportunity to move at a faster pace.”
