Who has been the biggest influence in your life and why?

  • I've had lots of coach influences in my life, my past three coaches have really mentored me into becoming a better person and have showed me that basketball isn’t all physical but is also about the mental game. My biggest influence though I’d have to say is my mom. She is why I strive for better and work as hard as I do. Everything she does is with determination and strength. I want to become a prayer warrior and continue to grow in my walk with God. She's always taught me to be independent but to only depend on God, she introduced to Christ's love at a young age and for that she deserves all my gratitude. I’m blessed to come from such a strong foundation and have a Christian leader in my own home to guide me through fellowship.
