Basketball has had the greatest impact on my life and has inspired me to be great as an athlete and a person. I started playing when I was in third grade, but I was a kid playing at the park. It was my fifth grade year when I played on my first basketball team. It was the Dayton nets that took me in made me into the player that I am today. I've learned that basketball is all mental and you have to be tough minded in order to succeed in basketball. I apply this knowledge to school to help me get through hard task and I've also used this to help deal with certain situations.
My goals in highschool is to achieve the best grades that I possibly can, so it can make it easier for me to get into college. My goal for college is to graduate and get my degree so I can be a successful citizen and have a good life after school. My life has had ups and downs like everyone else's and I always used people's negativity and hate as my motivation to become a better person and athlete. I am a very straightforward person and tell people my honest opinion to help better myself and others that I care about
