As I look forward to entering high school I have set many academic and athletic goals for myself, with the primary one being to enjoy every moment by not settling for less than my best. My passion for reading has given me the ability to excel academically. I understand that to maintain my academic success I am going to need to demonstrate a high level of motivation, determination and strong work-ethic. On the court, I use these same qualities to continue developing my game. I am challenging myself to be a well-rounded basketball player. This includes being an outstanding student-athlete on and off the court; by being teachable, coachable and a reliable teammate. With a strong sense of who I am and who I want to become I am determined to achieve greatness.
