As a four sport varsity athlete as a freshman, I had to learn to find my voice very quickly. Because I was able to do this, I was voted captain my sophomore year. When I received that great opportunity, I realized that I can not only be a good teammate, but I can also lead a team. Now that I have found good ways to speak my mind, I have not only learned how to talk on the court and field, but I have learned better communication skills in all aspects of my life.
During my basketball career, I’ve gotten to experience many national wins, and I’ve had many game winning- buzzer beater shots, but none of that beats the family I gained when I joined the team. Throughout my time on many different teams, I’ve learned that no matter the outcome of the game, at the end of the day, your team will always be there for you. I feel that no matter where I continue my academic and athletic career, I will find a new family that can bond together and grow stronger through anything. They will help me grow as not only a player, but they will also help me grow as a person.
