I am an 8th grader at Twin Lakes. I started playing basketball in kindergarten with my first competitive basketball games. During my first couple years of basketball, I knew it was going to be my whole world. I always wanted to be in the gym, and I thought about it all the time. I wanted to be just like Whitney Jennings, (my role model), and having her as a role model has helped me become a better person and player. It wasn't always easy. I often played up a grade level or two for my school team, and I was weaker than some of the older girls. It was very frustrating to be the weaker kid. However, that experience drove me to get better. The highlight of my career thus far was breaking the record at IGBRR Futures Camp. I not only won the hot shot competition, but I got the highest score that the camp has ever had. In high school, my future goal is to be Miss Basketball, but I also want to have one of the highest GPAs in my 2024 class.
I believe I'm very unique when it comes to basketball. I've been told by my coaches that I'm just a different type of athlete. Every day before school I'm in the gym shooting. I always get to the gym well before everyone else, and I always leave after everyone is gone. I want to outwork everyone, not only so I can be the best on the court but if I develop good work habits in the gym, it will help me in the classroom. The travel team that I joined is an hour and a half away from my house, and I travel that twice a week for practices. However, I joined the IGB team because it is the most elite travel team in Indiana for my age group. I want to go to a college that not only has a great program for women's basketball, but will get me get a good education. I believe, I would be the most determined player on your team to get better in the gym and the classroom.
