If I had the opportunity to do what I love for the rest of my life I would choose to be a counselor and head basketball coach for a high school! I would love to be a counselor for under privilege kids that are coming from troubled homes and are searching for a outlet or just someone to love them. Reason being is that I was one of them kids that were always in trouble or searching for attention. I know how it feels to see your mother doing drugs and things that a kid shouldn’t see a adult doing! So in order for me to express what I was seeing or how it was affecting me I would act up and just search for attention in any way! So I want to be an outlet, a mentor, a role model, and just a shoulder for your individuals that are searching for something. Show them that I came for a background that might not be exactly like there’s but I came from a rough background and I’m a testimony that if you find someone you trust and or something that can keep you occupied that you love that there is a path of success.

Then being a basketball coach is just a passion that burns deep in my heart, being that no one thought I would play college and I did/ is. I want to also show kids what dedication; perseverance, humbleness, and heart can do in the sports world!
