Which made me decide to play basketball. However, asthma was only one of the reasons why I started to play basketball. I wanted to prove other people and myself that I am able to be good in a sport despite my condition. I didn’t want to use my asthma as an excuse, so I pushed my body beyond its limits whenever I am playing basketball with my friends or at basketball practice. Later, I joined my middle school basketball team.
I have been playing basketball since I was in 5th grade. When I went to middle school, I was selected by the district basketball team. I intended to attend every practice because I really did enjoy playing basketball. When I entered 8th grade, there was a tournament amongst all the 8 districts in ShenZhen, the city in which I lived. I considered the tournament as a precious opportunity for me to prove my efforts.

She instantly became interested in Basketball when she was a young girl, this is because of her older brother who would make her practice her shots with a stuffed sock.

We were winning so big, and I thought it was a great game. When I looked around the locker room and saw everyone’s faces, I felt selfish. I had only been thinking about myself and this game being my last. I had not thought about my other teammates who also were playing their last high school basketball game. My coach told me to pass the ball to my teammates, even though I was scoring a ton of points.

As a young boy realizing this was not the most motivating thing. It really makes you think about what is important to you. I can still remember the way that my life was changed by sports.

Finally, freshmen year tryouts came, and this year I was confident in my ability but I was also nervous because we had to tryout in front of coaches and upperclassmen I didn't know.

He first said “congratulations you made the team”, a smile slowly started to come on my face and I could barely hear what he said after because I was so happy.

I couldn’t believe it. I quickly laced my shoes and ran onto the JV court and started practicing my shooting.
