My name is Kiona McCallister and I have been playing basketball since first grade. Throughout the years, I have always towered over my peers. As I started to play basketball, I always believed basketball was my “calling”. I have always had good grades in school and I'm searching for a program that will challenge me academically and athletically. Being a two-sport athlete (basketball and track) and performing well in both sports, not only do I have the athleticism to compete at the collegiate level, but my work-ethic, positive attitude, and competitiveness play a large role in my performance as a student athlete. While continuing to gain confidence, as I perfect my craft, I have always overcome many challenges I have faced on the court. I strongly believe in the phrase “practice makes perfect” because practice is where you learn from all of your mistakes while becoming a better athlete.
