What is your area of study?
What sparked your interest in sports?
It’s just something I’ve been a part of my whole life and grew up playing sports with my brothers.
What excites you about sport?
The thing that excites me about the sport is the competitiveness that comes when playing regulated games. In addition to this, basketball is something that’s easy to play but hard to master so out of all the sports I played, basketball's probably the most difficult which is why I like it so much.
Tell us about your proudest accomplishment in sport?
Signing a scholarship to play post secondary basketball while still getting an education.
Who is your mentor or inspiration?
What does Black History Month mean to you?
It means a lot because it recognizes the Black community as a whole and the struggles we’ve gone through.
What does it mean to you to be a Black athlete in university sport?
It means a lot especially coming to a school that is predominantly populated by white people, so coming here and being able to stand out in a good way is really cool to me.
What words of inspiration would you share with young BPOC athletes?
Just keep working hard and prove the people that doubt you wrong and use that doubt as motivation.
What is one thing you wished people knew about you and your culture?
I wish I knew why the stereotypes that surround Black people are still being accepted.
