I am a 5’11” 16-year-old sophomore currently attending Bancroft School in Worcester, MA. Growing up in a small town, there were limited opportunities for competitive girls basketball. I knew when I was in the fifth grade playing with 3rd and 4th graders on a lowered net that I wanted to play basketball more competitively. From the summer of 5th grade on I sought out every opportunity I could to get better, even if this meant traveling long distances or staying with extended family to attend camps. I joined my first AAU team in the sixth grade. I currently work out nearly every day, with my team (a two-hour drive!), my trainer, or by myself in a nearby gym. I pride myself on my shooting, and I make it a point to put up shots every day. I also take my academics very seriously, because one day I hope to become a doctor. This dream was solidified this past summer while during COVID quarantine I enrolled in an intensive summer program that focused on becoming a doctor. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends or my siblings, going to the gym, and watching Netflix.
I am a skilled shooter, with good range, so I can shoot well beyond the 3 point arc.
I am a good on ball defender, and my length helps me get steals and deflections.
I am very coachable, and good at correcting mistakes so I encourage that feedback from my coaches.
I am a hard worker, always striving to get better, and always found in the gym.
I am a high-percentage free-throw shooter, and am often used to make those final shots in games, both from the foul line and the outside.
I am tall, so rebounding is a strength, I am very good at timing my jumps to grab rebounds.
I have started on my high-school varsity team since the 7th grade, and am often relied on by my teammates and coaches to score and make big plays.
