I have been playing basketball for over five years. I have learned that playing basketball requires great communication, hard work, and trust. Each team member is important. If we work together as a team we can be unstoppable. I have been a part of a team that has lost every game, and I have been a part of a team that excelled and won every game. Through this process, I have learned that winning isn’t everything. My teammates are my friends. I have enjoyed being a part of a team that cares about each teammate. It’s important to always do your best. My parents have taught me to work hard and to never give up. They have encouraged me to excel in academics as well. I enjoy learning new things. Math is one of my favorite subjects. I am determined to always do my best. I look forward to the possibility of playing college basketball and earning a degree.
