I lived in a foreign country for 6 years as a missionary. While there I was able to play basketball with teammates from other cultures. We moved back in 2020 and I started attending Stryker High School. My first few days of practice were very different from what I was used to, and the Coaches had their doubts about my capabilities. However, by the end of that season they brought me up to varsity and were excited to see what I would bring to the team for this year. I am hardworking, and very teachable. I'll push my teammates and myself to do the best that we can do, on and off the court. My dream is to be able to get recruited to a college for basketball with a scholarship, and be able to pursue being a college athlete and my academics to become a veterinarian.
