Q: How has an independent school helped you realize your potential?
A: Well, obviously, being an athlete, my true passion was sports. So, on the one hand I remember all the teammates, the games and travelling with the different teams, and on the other hand I really remember how important it was academically for me to meet the standards and be able to go to university and therefore setting up the opportunities that I've had within basketball. So, I think it's easy for me to recall the sporting memories, but for me I think the academics were as important if not more.
