Want to know more about me? Ask away!

What are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about basketball. I grew up surrounded by sports and found my love of basketball. I am currently coaching a team with my mum and coaching another team on my own (under 18’s). I love coaching young children and watching them become better players. I also play for the Goannas Deaf Basketball Team. I’m also passionate about helping people in times of need, whether it’s mentoring, having someone to talk to, or someone who needs a bit of a push forward to reach their goals. I’m open, I’m friendly and I’m easy going

What skills, experience, strengths or knowledge can you offer someone as their mentor?

I love a bit of a challenge so I hope this program will make me a better mentor. So approach me with anything and we can do a bit of “help you, help me” whether it’s about life, sports, school/university/TAFE  or work. So hit me up! I have a lot of sport experience, mainly basketball but I can work with general sport athletes with mentoring or goal settings. I can also provide some advice about the transition from high school to University or TAFE.

Best advice you would give or have been given:

A wise friend and trainer once told me: “Every day is a good day, never a bad day.” (Never wake up thinking that it will be a bad day or think something will go wrong, or you will bring out the negative attitude in yourself.) I also love the 2 quotes below:

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying”

“Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”

These two quotes are not just basketball-related but also life-related.

Most important life lessons learned:

Never raise your expectation or put your hopes up, because sometimes you won’t get it at the end and you will end up feeling crap about it. Lower your standard and reach for something but beyond the standard. Reach for the impossible. Impossible doesn’t mean not possible, it means I’m Possible.
