Share this article Share I was taught to play basketball by my grandparents.
They also taught me to ride a bicycle, and my mom taught me how to walk.
My parents, who grew up on a farm, worked long hours, and I never played basketball because I was afraid of the sun.
I started playing on a playground with a friend, but my mom didn’t want me to be the first one to jump on a ball.
After that, I started doing everything on my own.
My family still runs the farm, but I’m the only one who gets to do that now.
I learned the basics on the playground, and then I was able to learn the basics in the classroom.
I got my first job as a school custodian in a preschool.
I’ve never been in a classroom before, and it was the first time I really felt like I had a purpose in life.
I never got to be a basketball player, but it has been a blessing in disguise.
I think it helped me to learn to care more about my body and the people around me.
I’m now a health care assistant, helping parents get access to health care for their children, and learning to manage my time better.
It’s been a lot of hard work, but the payoff is that my children are happy and healthy.
