Seeing the hard work and dedication of my parents everyday and what they do for us is amazing. It helps me to want to strive to do the best and to be the best in anything and everything I decide to do. I have had a ball in my hand from the time I was big enough to hold it. I loved watching my brothers play basketball it was always so exciting. The more I watched, the more interested I got in the game. Being a student athlete has taught me time management, organization, perseverance, and how to be a team player in and out of the classroom. I am working on my academics in school working on achieving a GPA suitable for any college. I want to go to college to become a specialist in surgery or anesthesiologists.
Being a young athlete and experiencing injury and not being able to play a sport I love was eye opening as disheartening but knowing education is important. I am a student athlete who sets. A positive example for my teammates. I take great pride in my character. I strive for success and excellence both in the classroom and on the court.
