Allergic to Failure is a motto that I’ve stood by since my younger days as a teen. I wasn’t the best at my younger age but I didn’t let that stop me. Some people in doubted my skills as basketball player but I took that doubt in as motivation.
I learned to take my failures not as a stopping point but more as a learning lesson. It helped me develop as a basketball player and as a person. I had to learn to not give up but to only get better. With that in my mind in my journey through the NBA I want to help impact and inspire children, teens, and other adults to not give up on their dream when things get tough or seem out of reach. But to fight through and strive to fulfill their goals and become the best versions of themselves possible on and off the court. I believe in being the change you want to see, so I choose to lead by example. It’s easy to get or be discouraged in todays world, and I want to help change that by using my platform in my community. I can accomplish this by giving back and helping our youth stay encouraged to not give up.
With Allergic to Failure I want to give the younger generation in my community opportunities I didn’t have in my rising. Providing them with the access to the support and knowledge they need in real-life experiences and of course on the court.
