What would you say is your greatest talent or skill? How have you developed and/ or demonstrated that talent overtime?
I began playing basketball when I was nine. It took me time to understand and learn the meticulous techniques, but over time through watching professional games and practicing diligently, I developed my skills and became an accomplished player.
My coaches were my mentors and they often gave me advice that helped me become more tenacious and hard working.
I joined my high school basketball team where I met other like-minded players that taught me different skills that would further my performance. I have always been motivated, but it wasn't until I got to high school that I started to become more competitive about the game.
No matter the circumstances, I was sure to never miss practice. I would even practice on weekends at home. Because of this, I became a recognized player on my team.
Over the years, basketball has taught be how to work smarter, become more disciplined, and has kept me motivated. I have been able to apply these beneficial techniques to all areas of my life which has shaped my values and developed my character.
