My Students

My students range from the age of 11 and 12 and the are very eager to take on the world. Most of my students are limited to the amount of resources that they have at home and this sometimes plays a role in them falling behind. With that being said, they still refuse to give up and are ready for any challenge.

The day to day challenges that comes with coming from an underprivileged home and overcoming life’s obstacles is what make my students special.

My Project

Last year I had the privilege to coach the 7th grade girls basketball team for the first time. With hard work, dedication and the girls believing in working on fundamental skills we ended our season undefeated. This year I will be coaching at the high school. I will be the girls' varsity assistant coach, junior varsity coach, and freshman coach.

I believe in fundamental.

The girls on the basketball team cannot afford professional training like some of their competition. Receiving this equipment will allow them to work on their fundamental skills to enhance their skills while they are in offseason.
