When I came to NMH, I had to build up my confidence. Back then, I was only so-so at basketball. In fact, in my freshman year at my old school, I only played a few minutes the entire season. But when I got to NMH, my coach told me to write down my goals, then tear that up and write down my dreams. I wasn’t dreaming big enough. You see, in my old school, I never saw myself as someone who could be a Division I player one day. Now I can.

I’ve also explored new dimensions of myself here. I was never one to go to plays or dance recitals, but at NMH I have friends who are actors and dancers and that’s really interesting. I also really like it that I have friends from other countries. I get a broader view of the world that way.
