I started basketball when I was in the fourth grade just to try it. After my first game, I fell in love with the sport. That summer I attended Duke and Kentucky Women's basketball camps and that was when I knew I wanted to to play basketball in college. Half way through my 8th grade year I lost my grandmother. She never wanted me to settle but push myself to be better. That season I played for her and won the Championship and got MVP. I have learned from playing this sport you can't wait for things to come to you. You have to make your own move and play to succeed.
I have been fortunate to have been mentored by successful women's basketball players including Megan Walker, Ka'lia Johnson, and Rebecca Greenwell. They have inspired me and showed me anything is possible. They also taught me what hard work excels you not just in basketball but as a person. Anything is possible if you stay positive and handle adversity well. I want to graduate high school, play basketball at the next level. and earn a degree. I want to be a sponge and absorb all that I can so when I finish college I can build a successful life and family.
