Growing up many things changed but a few things stayed constant. My hometown changed, my schools changed, my friends changed, and many other things changed but in my life my family and basketball have been the only two constant variables in my life. My family has passed many values and skills down to me throughout my lifetime, which have impacted me as an individual in everyday life, my academics as well as athletics. While many might consider basketball as just...

Diversity is important in a school atmosphere as well as in an individual. As an individual I believe I encompass diversity not only within myself by also within my choices in life. I come from a Lithuanian background where I was raised with very Lithuanian morals and customs, which allowed me to understand and appreciate the American culture more as well as my own for their emphasis on education, family and appreciation. With my unique background I would be able...

My parents moved to America at a much older age to help us get a better education and because of that they were not very knowledgeably of American society. When I was younger...

In the process of my hard work I taught myself to be ambidextrous when I injured a finger in my right hand during the basketball season. With hard work I also gained the GPA I worked for all through high...

The program allows the kids in my neighborhood to play in teams competitively as well as get up earlier on weekends and train. I also try to give all the players any advice I know about basketball and various exercises to help improve their game. Growing up I never had the older brother to...
