Introduction

The balance between playing basketball and studying is what I want to achieve. To be a balanced person, you have to deal with a few different things by doing them well. I strive for greatness, so I give everything from myself in order to make my dreams come true.

Interview

What makes you different

I do my best to distinguish from the other kids at my age, because their daily routine is very simple, so I want to spend my time after school doing something different. Like sport, like basketball. Working hard on the court, while everyone else are on the computer or buying clothes.

Why do you want to compete in college?

College basketball played at such a high level attracted me. Also practicing basketball every day, at college I also can learn what I want. What I would like to achieve at college is to do something useful for myself

College goals

My goal in college is to do everything with diligence and desire so that I know I have given everything from myself.

Basketball and life Goals

I believe basketball makes me different. I want to do it at a professional level and as long as possible. Of course, learning does not go any further.
