What makes you different?

My dedication for basketball stands out, I am focused on what I want to achieve, which means I make lots of sacrifices and don't let anything distract me. My mindset going into practices and workouts is to outwork everybody and I always try to push and motivate my partners as well. I am one of the hardest workers I know and I try to be prepared for every challenge I will be facing. My whole daily routine is targeted on my basketball goals and all the effort that comes with that, from working out in a smart way at whatever time on a daily basis to a healthy nutrition. I know exactly who I am and what my strengths and weaknesses are. As I have overcome major setbacks in the past that would have made others want to give up, like an injury with extremely low recovery chances, I know that whatever happens to me, I am not going to quit and I see such incidents not as failures, but as opportunities to rise and come back stronger while always maintaining a positive attitude. I learned that if you master your mind, nothing can stop you. Pressure does not scare me, I thrive on it. I am never satisfied and set myself new goals to reach one at a time.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to go to college because it is the perfect way to compete at a high level and focus on your education at the same time and because there are better opportunities for players to improve and reach their full potential. I also really want to go study in the USA because basketball and sports play a way bigger role in society than where I am from and I want to know what living there is like.

College Goals?

My goals for the whole college experience are to earn a college degree in Athletic Training or something similar that will enable me to stay close to the game, to get to know new people and cultures and of course to become a better player and help my team reach their goals.
