It has always been a dream of mine to become a collegiate athlete. Through all the adversity of growing up in a single parent household, and my mother being gone all the time due to the military, my goals have never been altered. I’ve always kept my head in the books and avoided all distractions that could steer me off course.
My biggest challenges came last year, my sophomore year, when my mom was told she’d be deployed for a year. For the first time in my life I felt like I was alone. I made the choice to stay with some close family friends so I could remain in the same school. I played every game for my mom that year. I put my heart 110% into the game, and no matter the result I left everything out on the court. There were many times I felt like giving up, but then realized I don’t have that in me, I am a fighter. As long as I have God but my side I believe I can get through any rough patch or adversity.
I believe I would be a great fit for you program because I am smart, resilient, and dedicated to getting 1% better everyday. I may not be the biggest person in the court, but I am usually the fastest and can out hustle anyone in my position.
