I've been understanding the game of basketball ever since the day I was born. Basketball has always been my number 1 sport to play and watch on television. Whether I'm watching the NBA or even college basketball, it always finds a way to entertain me. Athletically, when it comes to playing basketball I've always had that big-man mindset. I love getting as much rebounds as possible and I know I'm good at doing so because not only of my size and length, but my skill of boxing out m opponent and fighting for a rebound. And the key to me succeeding at that is to never give up. I always thought that the play isn't over until the other team has full possession of the ball and when they don't, I do my absolute best to get that ball right back. Whether it's a hard rebound or a chase down block, I want the team and I to work to get it back and t all starts with me not giving up on a play. Academically, my goal is to become an Engineer. Something to do with electricity and technology because I always had an interest in becoming am Electrical Engineer and I want to study more about it during college because high school wasn't enough for me to fully understand what it means to become an Engineer. Engineering always seemed so cool and interesting for me to learn not only for the money but because I like the idea of an Engineer.
