Q: What sports are you involved with and what drew you to that sport?

A: Basketball, my older cousin played basketball and taught me how to play.

Q: What movie inspires you as an athlete?

A: “Love and Basketball.”

Q: What athletes do you try to emulate and why?

A: Kobe Bryant, because of his mentality and work ethic; and James Harden because we are both left handed, so I try and make some of his moves and his playmaking skills.

Q: What life lessons have you learned from sports?

A: That nothing in life is handed to you, you have to work for everything you get. Everything is earned.
