It’s amazing what opportunities SCL brings outside of just basketball, coaching, and getting your masters. We all lived in the same state but it took us coming thousands of miles away from America to become friends. Above, are my new friends Taylor (right, red shirt) and Kollyns (left, yellow), we met in August but sometimes it feels like we’ve known each other forever. Everyone brings their own uniquness to our friendship, Taylor is that crazy, fun friend that you need when you’re having a bad day or need your spirits lifted. Kollyns is that friend that is goofy, caring, and loving that always make sure we aren’t getting into any unnecessary trouble. and me I’m that friend that can bring a good laugh and will have your back through whatever. When we come together it’s always a great time, there is so much unselfish love in the air, we go out and it’s always the typical argument of who will pay, Kollyns is like “guys I got it, relax” and Taylor says “No, I got it.” Then in the end everyone upset because someone allowed someone to pay for something when they wanted to pay for it. Our group message is my safe haven, we can all talk about our problems, it’s a judgment free zone, and in the end we always end on a positive note about any situation. It could be coaching, school, basketball, relationship, or family issues and each of us give good advice to help us get through tough times. I am grateful for my friends because coming to a new country, stepping out of my comfort zone, and being challenged in different aspects has allowed me to open up to them and have a closer bond. These two will be life long friends that I will cherish forever, our memories are some of my favorite memories and I am excited for more in the future! Thank you Taylor and Kollyns for allowing me to be myself no matter what and always being there when I need you guys! Just two LEGENDS no big deal!
