Attending college is a vital part of my goal to advance my academics and earn a college degree. Like education, basketball is an essential part of my life. I am preparing to enter into the next level of my education; however, I'm not ready to end my love for playing basketball. I enjoy the challenge that basketball requires as it pushes me both in the classroom and on the court. I plan to use my love for playing basketball as my resource to pay for the cost of attending college and earning my degree.
