Person You Most Look Up To and Why: "I look up to my older sister Alanya (grade 12) who used to play VK. She inspires me to never give up and work my hardest. In grade 7 Alanya was not very good at basketball and wasn't even allowed to play with the younger girls because she wasn't as skilled. Despite this, she thrived to become a better player and has worked extremely hard each and everyday to get to where she is today. Just like her, I want to work to push myself and increase my skills each day. She is now going to be playing at Capilano University and I one day see myself playing post secondary basketball as well."
