Being a student-athlete is a very special opportunity that not everyone gets to experience in college.
I started playing basketball in the 6th grade and have been in love with the game ever since. I never thought I would be playing college basketball when I was growing up.
I was blessed to be able to work hard enough to turn myself into a student-athlete my sophomore year, by walking on to the team.
Being a student-athlete brings one great opportunities to make life long connections with their teammates and coaches. However, it also brings challenges to life but these challenges will help one out in their future endeavors of life.
Being a student in college itself can be very stressful. Once the practices and games are added, plus the offseason commitment, one can imagine how stressful it can be.
Being a student-athlete has taught me one of the most important attributes that I will leave college with, time management. Learning time management has helped me stay on top of my schoolwork and excel in the classroom while also spending hours and hours with my team in the gym.
Looking back on all of it, I would not have my college career be any different.
