The number 23 will always carry with me for many reasons. It is the number I wore for basketball throughout my college career and postgraduate year. It was with me for 4 consecutive championships with my brothers beside me. It was with me through a lot of hard work and unforgettable memories.
As I close in on my 24th birthday, I recollect on the year I had as a 23 year old. This is another reason I will always remember 23. It was by far the most challenging and rewarding year of my life. It pushed me to be so much more mature, intelligent, and hardworking than any year thus far. It forced me to step way outside my comfort zone and grow exponentially. I can’t describe in words how this experienced has developed me as a person. It was the opportunity of a lifetime for me, and I will be forever grateful for the staff at Sport Changes Life, the Victory Scholars, and every single person I’ve met along the way. I’m also very thankful for my family, friends, and girlfriend, for enabling me to take on this experience and supporting me every step of the way.
