Personal Statement

My collegiate goals on and off the court. I want to earn my coaches & teammates respect by grinding like my life depends on it. I also want to be an advocate for social justice and support people of color. One way of accomplishing both of these goals is to prepare by training my mind and body every day and night and by having good character. 

In terms of basketball, I am a combo guard that fits well into a variety of offenses. I am a knock-down shooter (career 41% from 3) and I can do so off the dribble and/or catch-and-shoot. I thrive in the open court so I love to push it in transition, especially if I have wings that fill the lane). I also open up a lot of lanes in the half court set because my defender can't slack off of me. My AAU coaches and high school coach preferred me to have the ball in my hands so I'm very comfortable at the 1, but since I can shoot, they often mixed it up and when teams doubled me, they played me off the ball as well. I have big legs so I use them to have a strong base, which helps me sit in the chair on defense.  

I am fluent in 3 languages: Chinese, Latin and English. I won a full scholarship through the US State Department to study abroad in Taiwan for the Summer of 2019. I have 1100 SAT scores and I'm towards the top of my class at the #1 public charter school in Washington DC. I've won various basketball awards and All-Star nominations and I've been fortunate to travel around the country on the AAU circuit. Growing up in the DMV (DC, Maryland, Virginia) has given me a competitive edge because many of the nation's elite talent is right here in my backyard. Most of us have played against each other on the circuit and have trained together for years. My coaches and trainer would say that one of my best qualities is that I'm coachable. I look forward to the opportunity to learn the game from my college coaches and earn their respect in the process.
