It’s always tough leaving loved ones behind but when their love is so strong you’re motivated to succeed. Growing up my family has always been very close to me and meant so much to me and always will. This is the 6th year I’ve been away from home and I’ve adjusted to being away from my family just fine by now. I would love to see them on the daily but they’re prayers and love thousands of miles away is very comforting. We talk everyday so that helps hearing their voices or seeing their text messages. They’re just as excited for me and this new amazing opportunity and can’t wait to come visit and check it out themselves! They’re still the first to find out what’s happening out here even being thousands of miles away. I can’t wait for those care packages to start. I’m blessed to be a part of a big support system that comes from my family and friends.
These last four years I was able to become really close with my Siena family. It’s always hard embarking on a new journey especially when it’s out the country but I know have a second family in Albany, New York that I can lean on. Although I won’t have Siena on the front of my jersey anymore I will still represent everything the college represents on and off the court. I would like to thank the faculty and staff, the athletic department for helping me become a Victory Scholar! I would also like to thank my coaching staff and teammates for so much!
