My name is Kiara Shepherd and I am a junior at Deep Creek High (Class of 2021). I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and I currently live in Chesapeake, Virginia. I started playing basketball in the sixth grade. My goal is to attend a four-year university with hopes of becoming an educator, even majoring in business or human resources. I would be a great candidate for any team because I come from a military background, which has taught me how to easily adapt to any environment, plus I am simply fun to be around.
When it comes to basketball, I know my teammates and I are alike in several ways because of our love for the game. I can play and have played all five positions. My willingness to learn from someone younger or older and the fact that I am discipline, poised under pressure, dedicated, hardworking, never quit attitude, and the fact I will not disappoint my family is the difference between myself and other recruits.
I am extremely athletic because I have been able to do outstanding on the basketball court and on the field in track, while maintaining academic eligibility resulting in me being a coach’s triple threat athlete or what some may call a coach’s dream come true.
