Most influential person in your life? Why?
My parents for all they have ever done for me, all the sacrifices they've done for me and my sister to being able to become what we are, and all the life lessons and teachings like hard work. My sisters have helped me to become who I am. They taught me a lot. My coaches taught me about team work and hard work in the court and also how to apply that to real life situations.

Why did you choose YCC?
I chose YCC because of the good impression. Coach Epps talked to me about the school when I came on my visit. It's a small school with a new, promissing basketball program.
