I have always been a leader in all aspects of life, on and off the court. I think this comes from the fact that I am the oldest of six children. I have always been someone who is responsible and strives to do my best. When I started playing basketball, in 6th grade, I spent a lot of time on the bench. However, I have always been a hard worker and put in the work so that I have been a starter on my high school varsity team since my freshman year. I am currently the leading player in rebounds and points for my high school varsity team scoring around 16 ppg and 11 rebounds. I started basketball and swimming in 6th grade and from my sheer athleticism and determination I knew I would be the best at what ever I chose to do. My attitude in practice is what I feel like separates me from most others because of the fact that I am highly coachable and am able to adapt quicker than most other players. I put in hours of work after practice to put myself ahead of and apart from the competition. My sophomore year I was awarded first team all-district and defensive player of the year and I have improved more since then.
Academics are never really an issue for me, averaging a 3.6 to 3.9 gpa in Honors, AP, and Dual Credit classes. Even though academics come easy to me, that does not stop me from pushing myself to be the best that I can be.
On the court I am very energetic and always know what to do to get my teammates to radiate the same energy that I do. My teammates and I play with high intensity and high energy because I bring those qualities to the beginning of every game. I work hard in all aspects of my life because I know that getting a jump on it will help me succeed later in life and in my basketball career. I am a phenomenal student athlete and have an easy time building bonds with those that I compete with and against.
