My passion is basketball.
I discovered my passion for basketball by watching my father play the sport. It was really interesting to see how high the intensity of the game was. I have been playing basketball since the 5th grade. I have done some CYO competitions and they were really fun. I am also playing basketball because it is another ticket for me to go to a top college. The colleges I really would like to attend would be UCLA, UC Berkeley, or Texas A&M. I know that there is a slight chance of me being a professional basketball player, but I would like to take that chance to be able to play for them. Also if I don not make it professionally, that is why I am going to a college that could provide me with the education that I will need to be successful. That is how I found my passion for Basketball
When I think of what an ideal student would be, it would be someone who pushes expectations and sets their own mark. Elijah is that student. As mentioned above, Elijah is able to adapt to all groups of students. He connect, leads, and builds confidence. I see this in my classroom and in the gym when he plays basketball. Thus, Elijah is an excellent candidate for US Sports Nike Basketball Camp because he will commit to his passion and find a way to lead his peers. He will bring up the energy of the team with either his calm or his curiosity. Elijah will benefit from this program because it would expose him to different environments and people. He needs to be pushed to lead outside of school. Once Elijah is called on (outside of school) I am 100% confident that he will demonstrate why he is an ideal student and perfect candidate for any program.
My Experience at the US Nike Sports Camp was one I would never forget and hope to go to one again. This experience helped me meet people from different states and learn leadership qualities that I didn't have before. The staff there showed me respect and equality and let me know that I could get a scholarship at UC Santa Cruz. It was fun and it also let me know that you have to lose to win.
I would like to thank all of my of my donors for helping me be fully funded for my program. Without this, I would have probably been bored for the summer. Now that I know what I am going to be doing for the summer, I can't wait for it to happen. So, thank you for everything you have done for me. Thank you very much! Mucho's Gracias!
