    The time when I have overcome adversity was when I was a freshman in high school. Coming into high school I thought that it was going to be easy for me to make the basketball team since I was one of the best players in middle school. I came into my first high school practice very nervous and cocky but I was struggling to hand around the other players because of my size. I went to practice every day trying to impress the coaches that I'm able to keep up with the others. Months went back and it was time for tryouts the day where kids showcase their talents. I came into the tryout with the same mindset being cocky because in the back of my head I thought that I was already on the team because I went to every single practice, but that wasn't the case. I had an average performance in tryouts but the only thing that the coaches saw was that I was slow, short, and fat at the time. A few, days later the results of who made the team came in. I was nervous, scared, and had a lot of anxiety walking to the gym to see the list of players that made the team. I look at the list two times and I didn't see my name on the list. I was sad, upset, and release a lot of emotion because I felt that all the work that I put in going to practice every day went to waste. That day affected me in a good and possible way because it made me a determined, and motivated person. When I have seen the results the first thing I did after school was I went straight to the gym to get up shots and I ran on the track every day. I push myself to the limit every day to get better and to improve on my game so that I could not only make the team next year but play varsity. The next school year came around and I was confident that the work that I put in will pay off. I went to practice every day like I did last year, but the coach looks at me as a different player because I became taller, faster, and a better player overall. I stayed humble and worked very hard to make the team. When tryout came I went with a killer mentality to outwork the opponent and the coaches like that. The coaches talked to me after the tryout and they were proved of how I perform and told me that I made the team. I was happy, but I was ready to play and compete for a district and state championship. I learn from this experience that nothing is given to you in this world but you have to outwork the competition. By doing that you will see a light at the end of the tunnel, and you will be successful.

    I am passionate about playing the game of basketball and making inspiring and motivational content on youtube to inspire the youth to never give up on their dreams. The steps that I planned to take toward a career involving this passion are going to play basketball at the collegiate and pro level while inspiring the youth at the same time. Also, to use my platform to make a change in society and to give back to my community because as a kid I learned that much is given much is required. The time when I faced tremendous adversity was when I was a freshman in high school. Coming into high school I thought that it would be easy for me to make my high school basketball team since I was one of the best players in middle school. I came into my first high school practice very nervous and cocky but I was struggling to hand around the other players because of my weight. I went to practice every day of the week trying to improve the coach that I'm able to keep up with the others. Months went back and it was the team for tryouts the day where kids shine and showcase their talents. I came into the tryout was that same mindset being cocky because in the back of my head I thought that I was already on the team because I went to every single practice, but that wasn't the case with the coaches. I had an average performance during tryouts but the only thing that the coaches saw was how slow, short, and fat I was at the time. A few, days later the results of who made the team came in.

I learn that nothing is given to you in this world but you have to outwork the competition and stay humble. By doing that you will see a light at the end of the tunnel, and you will be successful.
