Growing up, I was around the game of basketball non-stop. My older siblings and cousins played so I was thrown right in the mix. I began playing in leagues and clubs. No matter what I did, it involved basketball. As I got older, my parents let me know that there were other aspects to life than just basketball. At that moment, I began taking academics very seriously. The love that I have for basketball and education is something that I must continue. I am determined to excell and achieve at the next level. I would love to stay around the game along with pursuing my education. I would love to stay around the game after my years in college. Whether that is a coach, player, or trainer, that is my plan. My overall love for the sport is unmatched.
