They showed me what it takes to to be an effective leader and captain.

My family did not let me give up on my dream, and they helped me prepare for the next year’s tryouts by driving me to club tryouts, countless lessons, and intramurals. Daily, my brothers and I would practice in our backyard just tossing the ball around. Every day, I would get better, serve the ball further, and my confidence would grow.
