Having been selected to be a Victory Scholar is something unimaginable. The opportunity that Sports Changes Life presents is unique and exhilarating. Being given a chance to not only make a difference in my own life, but the lives of others is truly a blessing! It has always been a dream of mine to play basketball overseas, as well as further my education. Doing both at the same time makes being selected as a scholar that much more humbling.


The one thing my coaches and parents have always stressed is using your talents or given abilities to help others. In being selected to represent SCL, i will be able to share my knowledge and understanding of the game of basketball to kids in Ireland. Not only will i strive to teach them the basic skills and fundamentals that have been passed down from my previous coaches and mentors, I will relate to how this sport has helped me experience life lessons and absorb valuable qualities in becoming a better person.


Being selected as a Victory Scholar has made me eager to get my journey started. The chance to be involved with the game i love, while embracing another culture is something some people can only dream about. Impacting others on a worldwide level has been a goal of mine for years and having a chance to a fulfill this vision has made me excited for what is to come over the next year.
