I have goals to do the best in academics and basketball. I've been influenced by coaches, family and my own personal motivation to succeed as an athlete and student. I started playing basketball in 3rd grade and by 7th grade I realized my passion for the sport lead me to set goals to play college level basketball. I've learned leadership, dedication and discipline with the sport of basketball. My academic goal is to carry a 4.0 in high school. The death of my dad has been the biggest obstacle I have had to overcome. I am extremely dedicated to everything I put my mind to.
