  1. I have been a huge fan of Bella. I watched her grow under the mentoring of another super setter and I have watched as she mentors a successor. She is a gem and performs to the highest in the classroom, court and as an ambassador. I think her testimonial is not surprising because she lives her words. I am blessed to have met her.
