What is your background?: I am from Rockford, Illinois. I grew up living with my mother, brother, little sister, and my grandmother. I attended high school at Rockford East High School.

What brought you to Kirkwood and why?: The tradition of becoming a better person and a better basketball player. Also, when I came on my visit, I felt a family vibe the whole time I was here, the coaches and administrators made me feel welcome and I knew that this would be a good fit for me.

What is your program of study and what interests you about it?: I am in the process of completing and receiving my Associate in Liberal Arts, but after my two years I want to continue school and look to pursue a degree in Sports Management.

Are you involved in anything else on campus? If so, what and why?: The only activity I am involved in on campus is I am on the men’s basketball team.

What do you do for fun?: I love to hang out with my teammates, watch basketball, cook, listen to music, and play basketball.

Where do you see yourself in five years?: In five years, I see myself graduated from college, working a job somewhere in the sports management field and looking to find something other than basketball that can make me as a happy as basketball always has.
