When I was a little kid, all I ever wanted to do was play basketball. I fell in love with the game when I was about 5 years old and it has been a part of my life every day since – I’m not exaggerating either! Throughout my school years, I was in season for basketball every day. From playing on my school team, to the local district team, to AAU (travel basketball) during the summer months, and of course all the practices and extra workouts – this routine was my life until I graduated high school and I loved every second of it. During my junior year of high school, I began to get recruited to play college basketball. I loved this game so much and having the opportunity to continue playing for the next 4 years was a dream come true. Though my 4 years at Brockport went by in the blink of an eye, I would not have changed a single thing. It was an honor being able to represent the College and the women’s basketball team.
For my blog this week, I thought it’d be fun to give you some “behind the scenes” facts about my experience as an NCAA student-athlete:
Being an NCAA student-athlete is hard work, it requires dedication and passion both in the classroom and on the court. The countless hours I put into the sport I love opened so many doors for me and I will always be grateful for the chance I was given. Without basketball, I wouldn’t have had this amazing opportunity to be a part of the Sport Changes Life family!
