I went to my first basketball game when I was only a week old, and I started playing in kindergarten. My love for the game has never stopped. Through the game of basketball, I have learned that hard work pays off and to never give up because the game doesn’t stop until the buzzer goes off! These skills have carried through in my academic performance as well. After completing my high school Freshman and Sophomore years, I have successfully completed several honors classes and have passed two AP exams. I am interested in becoming a physical therapist and plan on pursuing that career path in college. I am a focused student-athlete and plan to continue the pursuit and realization of my dream.
