My goal is to play at the college level and to make a difference on that team. I am a team player (I even gave my basketball shoes to a player on another team so that she could play.) I encourage my teammates and lead them as both a player and a team captain.
I care more for teammates, opponents and coaches than I care for myself. One example of this: I don't always have to be the high scorer. My team was ahead by 30 points in a game, and one of my teammates hadn't scored yet. So I continued to pass her the ball until she scored. She was very excited when this happened! I work hard on and off the courts - I travel two hours each way to practice in order to play on a club team and have for the last four years.
No matter what team I am on, I always give it my everything. I sacrifice my time with my friends and family in order to play basketball and to keep my grades up.
