Basketball has been a staple in my life for as long as I can remember. With an older sister who played basketball, I tagged along to all of her games with a normal Saturday consisting of sitting in a gym. Little did my elementary self know that watching those games would help me become a student of the game and the strong versatile player I am today.
Throughout all my years of sports, I have learned that the human body is far stronger than the limitations your mind puts on it. This lesson has allowed me to push through both physical and mental challenges and has instilled in me grit and a hard work ethic. These two qualities, along with integrity, commitment, and positivity, helped me to become a strong leader on my varsity team last season as a sophomore. I am looking for a team that values these qualities in athletes along with strong academics. My goal in life is to help others by working in the medical field, so I am looking for a high quality education. I have a strong active presence in my school, not only on the court but in the classroom as well, and I believe I could do the same for your program.
