Ever since I can remember, I have always loved the game of basketball. I really love almost any sport possible that I can play whether it’s just for fun with friends, or for my school or community.
When I was in 6th grade, I experienced quite a scare. I developed nighttime seizures inexplicably and was forced to spend some time being diagnosed, tested, and ultimately missed basketball for a few months until doctors figured out what was going on. Fortunately for me and my family after treatment and much testing, I grew out of these seizures after about 6-12 months and nothing more serious came of it.
This experience taught me to value what I have with regards to basketball for certain, but also with my family, friends, and overall awesome experience I have had growing up. It’s helped me strive to do the best I can and make the most of every opportunity I have with school, sports, and most importantly my faith.
Its also shaped how hard I work to achieve the goals I set and meet and exceed my coaches and families expectations. Whatever university or college I choose, I am confident I will contribute in many different ways and represent that institution to my fullest possible abilities.
