Years Played with UA: Second Year

I am from South Sudan and was diagnosed with Polio when I was three years old in a small village call Boma. I moved to America in April 2006. I started playing wheelchair basketball in 2008 when I was 14 years old. I played throughout high school with the Houston Tirr Hotwheels. I helped my high school team bring the first championship since the program started. I was selected to try out for the Under 23 USA National Team in 2013. One of my goals is to represent Team USA in the future and be the first one to start a wheelchair basketball team in my Country of South Sudan. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with loved ones, listening to music and reading.
