A simple statement, yet a very important message I learned in my life, “No matter what”. I have improved so much in my life and achieved many goals with this statement. When I was starting my freshman year I lost the opportunity to have a basketball season and lost the motivation to do anything due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I decided to put in the amount of effort and work as I would if I had a season because the opportunity will soon come to me. No matter what, I am always going to put my best effort into anything important to me and I didn’t want to feel as if I gave up on myself. I very much believe anyone can improve their lives and achieve their goals with this statement and the determination to follow it.
Going into my freshman year I thought it would be very easy to become a Student-athlete. However, through the trials of the pandemic I didn't get to experience the obstacles that successful student-athletes face. As a sophomore, I learned the extreme importance of work ethic as I achieved my goal of becoming a player for the Varsity Basketball team at Glenview College Prep. A Student-athlete requires a great deal of commitment, responsibility, determination, and motivation. Not only to the sport of choice but to being a scholar. Each of these requirements contributed to what I now know as my solid foundation of my character. I deem to succeed in achieving my goals and beyond.
I am a 5’10 guard who can dribble, shoot, pass, and observe the floor. Toughness: I can rebound, I enjoy playing defense, and I have a strong work ethic. Attitude- I have a mentality to move on and do better along with learning from my mistakes. I am a good team player and leader. I bring positive energy to the court to allow my teammates to build off that energy to do good overall as a team. I get along with all teammates and at the end of the day it's all love and dedication for the game in my perspective. I am remarked as someone who is highly driven with a strong memory and remarkable physical coordination.
