Working hard all of the time is something that I aspire to do on and off of the court. In the classroom I am working hard on keeping my academics on top and my athletics in a close second. I have worked hard to get to where I am today, that is something that I will appreciate about myself. i was never handed opportunities I was beaten down but never stayed down. Getting back up even though it was tough had to be the best decision of my life. I went from sitting on the bench wondering why I was there to working day in and day out to become the best me that I could be. i soon found myself as a freshman in the starting five. This was because I pushed myself even when I didn't want to show up, the determination and will to be the best is what drove me to become the best basketball player and leader I could show. Being a leader has always been an important aspect in the game and in everyday life for me. We have all been underclassman before and we know the struggle of coming to practice scared and feeling not wanted. Being a open person and willing to accept failure is why I am a perfect selection for your team.
