Student Spotlight: Zein Obagi

This month in our student spotlight series, we are featuring Zein Obagi!

How long have you been playing volleyball?

I played in ninth grade, but then stopped. I resumed four years ago with indoor social volleyball in Hollywood, then social beach volleyball (five on a court) in Santa Monica, but that wasn’t getting me any better. I started trying to get more serious about it when I moved to Redondo Beach a year ago.

When did you start taking classes with VolleyCamp Hermosa?

My wife got me classes for Christmas 2018, starting January 2019. But I could barely make it out because of work. I finally started making it (to classes) more regularly in June, and my game has improved significantly because of it. But I’ve got a long way to go before the top guys in our classes – like the Dans and Erics – will play with me outside of class.

Tell us a little bit about your company and what you do for a living?

I have my own civil litigation firm in downtown LA that focuses on employment and business litigation. We represent employees who have been wrongfully terminated, unlawfully retaliated or discriminated against. We work hard through the courts to try to get our clients the justice that they deserve; sometimes it’s quick, and sometimes it takes years.

What else do you like to do besides play beach volleyball? 

I like spending time with my family – I’ve got eight siblings and many of us are close. My wife and I enjoy checking out new restaurants in the South Bay, and a night with friends on the pier from time to time.  VJ Jimbo!  Love watching the Chargers when they’re competitive (was born in San Diego). Board games! I really like 60 Minutes on demand. Really educational about unique things.
