My name is Nanalia Ho’olehua Pu’uwai Kahulamu Wagoner, AKA (Nana). I just completed 11th grade; and attending Bethel High School in Spanaway, WA. I also completed the Running Starting Program at Pierce College. I maintained a 3.83 GPA for the last 2 years; I am currently maintaining a 3.9 GPA. I am on the quarterly Presidents list at Pierce College for the fall and winter and the Dean’s List for spring quarter. I am very active in sports. I have been playing girls’ basketball from an early age of 7, started in 2007, continued to play the sport and gained a new-found love of basketball. I am very determined, show leadership and hold high goals to get a full, ride scholarship to college to play on the basketball team or for my academics; I want to double major in Law and Psychology. I understand it takes hard work and determination to reach my goals.
I am working at the YMCA as Youth Staff. I provide supervision, leadership and motivate participants in Youth sports such as Basketball, Soccer and Flag Football programs. I promote a positive environment that fosters fun, safety and our YMCA values, also safe sporting experience for an assigned group of athletes, while they learn individual and team games skills, sportsmanship and fair play. Work to establish and improve team unity and spirit. I love working with kids, making them feel good about themselves, encouraging them that they can be anything they want when they grow up. Children are our future.
When I attended Steilacoom High School I was the only freshman, starting five, varsity player. I played varsity from my freshman to sophomore year. I play two positions, point guard and shooting guard. I practiced 4 days a week with the team, conditioning, weight training and running sprints. I average 12 points per game, 80% free throws, and 50% field goal. I am predominately a left-hand ball player but able to use both hands.
I currently play with the girls’ basketball team at Bethel High School. I was a junior, starting five, varsity player. I play two positions, point guard and shooting guard. I practice 6 days a week with the team, conditioning, weight training and shooting 300 shots a day. My team went 17-3 in the season. We went to state, playing at the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, WA. We played hard but didn’t make to the finals. I have high hopes that my basketball team will win state next year.
I play with the 17U/Elite AAU girls traveling basketball team, Tree of Hope based in Renton, WA. Their mission is to provide young women with the opportunity to develop confidence, leadership abilities and friendships among carious socioeconomic and cultural line. Tree of Hope offers its participants the types of experiences that will prepare players for many challenges of life that lie ahead.
