Though my birth was in Cuba, I came here as a five month baby so I’m more American than Cuban. My childhood had its ups and its downs, such as the death of my grandfather and meeting my best friend/sister Joyce Alison or how I kindly call her “J.A.M.” We’ve been friends for over 13 years now though she moved to Orlando for about year, we were still friends. Hialeah Elementary School was where I was once attended but it didn’t hold fond memories as I hoped for. Another important that I was almost forgetting would be my little brother, David Rodriguez born in Palmetto Hospital on September 16, 2002. Afterwards, middle school started to kick in with a whole new start in Youth Co-op Charter School.

To most athletes, grades come before basketball. As a freshman in school, my Coach once told me, “If you focus and get your grades up, you’ll find yourself a spot on varsity.” As an athlete you have no choice. Why would you want to skip school but show up to practice? If you go to class daily, focus in class, & do your work, you can be successful. There are people who skip classes because they are boring.
