Being able to continue my passion for basketball while pursuing my academic interests would really be a blessing. I've played basketball from a very young age and had the good fortune of having an older brother that played Varsity basketball and a Dad that coached to guide me. Serving as a "scout team" member on my brother's Travel team at a young age, I learned a lot about the commitment and toughness required to play at a higher level which is serving me well as a starter since my Freshman year. That experience also taught me what it means to be an unselfish teammate and finding enjoyment in my friends' / Team success -- something I've carried with me from youth basketball to today.
I like to compete off the floor as well by maintaining a high GPA that I've carried since grade school, currently at a 4.0. Both my parents are graduates of the University of Wisconsin and have reinforced the value of an education and the doors it will open for me later in life so I work hard to maintain my grades and plan to do so at the next level to give me a chance to follow my career dreams.
I realize how lucky and blessed I am to get to play a sport I love with great friends and teammates on both my high school and AAU teams and am excited about what the future will bring!
