Aloooooha! My name is Alex Masaquel and I am stoked to be a part of the Sport Changes Life family as a Victory Scholar. I was born in California and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. After my senior year of high school, I left my little rock in the middle of the ocean to attend the College of William and Mary in Virginia where I studied Kinesiology, minored in marketing, and was a four-year varsity women’s basketball player for the College. In my senior year, I became the 17th player in school history to score 1,000 career points, named to the Second-Team All-CAA, earned a spot on the CAA All-Defensive Team, and was named to the CAA All-Academic Team.
This year, I will be pursuing an MSc in Business Management at Dublin City University while playing for the DCU college team, and with their club team, DCU Mercy! I wouldn’t be where or the person I am today without basketball, so the ability to give back to the local youth by coaching through eHoops is one of the most exciting features of this program. Additionally, I can’t wait to submerge myself into the culture that Ireland has to offer and live as the locals do! What an amazing opportunity! Thank you SCL!
