Basketball has always been a sport that I’ve played at a competitive level.

It has always been a way for me to relieve stress or even get away from the real world for a while.

From about kindergarten to 9th grade, I played for my CYO team through my grade school parish, rather then trying out for my high school team freshman year. Unfortunately, freshman year brought about a season end- ing injury where I broke my ankle and needed surgery.

Scared to get back onto the court, I went back to my CYO team sophomore year of high school to give it another shot.

Knowing my ankle was strengthened after that season, I was told numerous times to finally try out for my high school team. As they say, “setbacks create comebacks,” and that is exactly what I did.

I ended up starting both my junior and senior year playing for my high school team and making a statement on the court.

Everyone saw my dedication and love I had for the sport and strongly encouraged me to reach out to coaches and continue my basketball career in college.

I am unbelievably thankful for head coach Kate Pearson and the assistant coaches who have given me this opportunity to continue playing.

I really have proved to myself that if you want something, go out and get it because you will be successful.
