What really catalized my love for basketball was a challenge my dad proposed to me. The challenge given to me was to shoot 10,000 shots going into 6th grade. Two years later I expanded that challenge and took it to 50,000 during my 8th grade year. During those two summers I realized how much I enjoyed getting better at my game, but also how much joy basketball brought to me. All of those shots and work in the summer have helped me up to the point I am in my career such as the biggest acomplishment winning districts last year. During my high school basketball career and aau career I have learned one very important lesson. The lesson I've learned is never get comfortable and settle. I can never stop working and working becasuse there is always room to improve somewhere. I will live by that in the classroom too. I hope to achieve at minimum a 4 year degree in some form of a buisness major, and score over 1200 on the SAT in highschool. All in all, I want to continue my playing career after highschool. The challenge is great by having to manage school on top of basketball, but I can do it. This opportunity would show me how hard I have to work, then it will be easy to translate that work ethic to the real world.
