What are 2 pieces of advice that you would give to a beginning basketball player wanting to play in the NBA one day? Advice I’d give to someone just starting out is, work really hard and set goals, don’t give up if you’re struggling because pushing through the frustration will lead you to your goal.
What are your plans for after you graduate college? After I graduate college I’m going to start looking for a full time job that relates to my diploma.
