don’t stop when you’re tired, stop when you’re done – David Goggins

Sports, a past time everyone one can enjoy. My love for the NBA came from my brother who played high school and college basketball. Many nights I would watch NBA games with him and talk about the game, we would watch highlights together. He would take me to practice with him and show me the ins and outs of the game.  Sports began to be my own passion, I began to watch ESPN in the morning before school, look up the scores, now I have a ritual to watch a game a day. My goal is to transfer to Florida State University within the next year and a half and get my bachelors in communications. In the future I hope to give people younger than me the same inspirations that my brother gave me and allow them to fall in love with the game as well. I see myself one day being on ESPN reporting as a NBA insider and giving my opinion on all aspects of the game.

  5. Nice to meet you Nija! It’s cool that you became intrigued about basketball from your brother and that he helped you gain more knowledge of it. My own brother loves sports and watch ESPN shows like first take every waking Saturday morning. After reading your blog I could definitely see you being in one of those shows that the youth and general population love to watch. Looking forward to seeing the blogs this semester and I hope your transition to FSU is a smooth one!


  6. Nija, I am glad you had someone to look up to. Your brother must be a fantastic individual to inspire you to that degree.
