As I sit here at my coach’s house thinking of what to blog about, I continue to hear his fire alarms that are on low battery. The continuous beep makes me think of my heartbeat and just being alive in all aspects of life.
I continue to remind myself that I am in a different country and frequently laugh out loud randomly because I would never imagine being in this position.
The beep signifies my life in school, the community, and basketball. I am still alive academically because I will get my Master’s degree in the fast approaching year. I believe that if I were back home I would be content with living at home and obtaining a job. I know that to get where I want to be in life, I need my Master’s degree.
I am also well alive in the community here. There are hundreds of kids that will learn a bit about basketball in the next year from our scholars. This makes my heart race because it’s a sport that is close to my heart and is wonderful to share with kids who are interested.
Lastly, I get to continue to play basketball at a high level. This past weekend I was able to travel to Galway to see Carlow’s girls team. It got me really excited to get out and play again. After my senior year I thought I would be done playing forever and now I get goosebumps thinking about playing another year.
This opportunity truly gets my heart racing in all aspects that Sport Changes Life has arranged for me.
