Sports & College
I have been involved in sports from a young age. I competed in track and field, including shot put, discus, and javelin, as well as the sprint events, specifically the 100, 200, and 400m races. I also competed in wheelchair basketball starting at the age of 10 through college. I played for the Jr. Rolling Timberwolves in high school, then was recruited on a full athletics scholarship for college. I played for two more years in a men’s club after college before stopping my basketball career. Sports gave me a lot of confidence and were one of the many ways my parents encouraged me to be independent and involved in the community.
