Biography

Hello everyone! My name is Kollyns Scarbrough and I am truly honored to be apart of the Sports Changes Life foundation as a Victory Scholar. I was born and raised in Queens, New York. I spent the last four years of my life studying and playing basketball at Siena College, a division 1 school in Albany, New York. I recently graduated in May 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a minor in Education. I graduated with a cumulative grade point average of 3.41 and finished my final year with a 4.0 (something I am very proud of as you can see). Over the past four years I have served as a team leader and a SAAC representative. I was fortunate enough to play in every single game available in my college career. Thus leading me to break records in number of games played and started in as a Siena women’s basketball player. I have also finished top ten in All-time scoring, rebounding, and free throws made in Siena women’s basketball history.

To say I am excited to be studying at Ulster University in Sports & Exercise Psychology would be an understatement. To be apart of a program that allows me to obtain my master’s degree, continue to play the sport I love, and help the community around me is an honor. I have had many role models along the way who have shaped me to be a better basketball player and person. They have left a positive impact on my life and I hope to do the same for other children. I aspire to show children the number of doors athletics can open for them. I also hope to gain a better worldview while in Ireland. So I can then take my new knowledge and continue to help others and be an ambassador of change wherever my journey takes me next.
