Favorite sports memory:

My favorite high school sports memory would be getting nominated for basketball all-conference and chosen by my basketball team as the MVP. Being awarded this at the winter sports awards banquet took me by surprise because I never thought of myself as any better than anyone else on my team. It was a very exciting and fulfilling time for me.

Advice to an athlete:

No matter what or how hard things get, never give up and keep pushing for success. Success comes from hard work, not just from showing up one day and wanting to win. You have to work hard to get the outcome you want. Play for your team and not for yourself no matter how important or unimportant you think you are to the team. Everyone on the team is needed, even if some people don't get as much playing time as others.

Your inspiration:

My entire family. They were all very supportive of me throughout my high school sports career. From my parents almost never missing a game of mine, to my brothers always pushing me to do my best, there was never a moment when I wasn't supported by any of them. On top of all of this my grandmother was always congratulating me for all of my accomplishments whenever she could, as well as jokingly yelling at me for getting minor injuries throughout my sports career. I have all of them to thank for being there to push me to do my best in whatever I was doing.
