Basketball has always been an escape route for me. This sport is something I love and something that I put my all into every time I play. However, not only do I want to play basketball but I also want to receive a great education to put myself in the best situations to provide for my family and my community. At the end of the day, I think what separates me from other players is that I have the ability to listen which has helped me become a better person, athlete, and student. With that being said listening has helped become a better player in just the 4 years I've been playing this sport and at the next level, I feel this skill will help me continue to grow.
