Do you have any words of advice to aspiring athletes?
The most important thing I have learned while being an athlete is to keep working hard. Whenever you put in the work when nobody is looking then that’s where your confidence comes from. And confidence is really all it takes in basketball.
If you could meet anyone dead or alive who would it be?
xxxTentacion is someone I would like to meet just because he was in a time in his life where he was finding himself before he passed.
Besides the sport you compete in what is your fav sport?
Softball because I played when I was a kid and a few years in high school and just love the game.
Who is your favorite artist?
Rod Wave because he’s the GOAT.
What do you hope to still achieve in basketball?
I hope to play professionally overseas within the next couple years.
