Ever since I can remember my dad and I would always play 1 on 1 in our driveway. In the beginning, he always let me win to help build my confidence. He taught me to play tough and drive. He taught me that free throws were the most important part of the game. They can win championships. He always made me shoot free throws. All the time. It was extremely boring and I thought it would never make me better. Now, I can say it has. Being put on the free throw line during pressure situations I can shoot with confidence because of the endless practice sessions I had with my dad. As I excelled in the basics, he started to play tougher against me. This is one of the main reason I guard post players, practicing against him I have learned to play bigger than I am.
My dad has always told me that in order to do any extracurricular activities I must work hard in the classroom first. I work hard in the classroom, on the court and on the field. Academics always come first and I am looking for a college with a good medical program. I work at our community pool and also volunteer my time in helping a teacher at my school with her adaptive livings class during my free period. I teach a Sunday School class and serve at my church. I babysit for families every Sunday while the attend a Bible Study. I also babysit other families as needed.
