I have been immersed in basketball since I was 8 years old and it is an amazing journey that I enjoy every day. One day I will play in the NBA. But before that, I'm committed to moving forward in high school and college basketball.
I primarily play in positions 3 and 4, like my basketball role model Giannis. Last year I played position 5 because of my height. The coaches say I'm a pretty versatile player.
- On the offensive side, I pride myself on my three-point shoot, mid-range shoot, Alley oop dunks, free throws, floter, layup as well as my hook shot. Additionally, my overhead pass game is strong. Defensively, I bring shot blocking, steals and rebounding skills to the table.
In my career, I have had the honor of representing my country in 15 national team matches and playing across Europe in countries such as Finland, Portugal, Bulgaria, Spain and Lithuania. I also competed at the European Championship, where our national team won 7th place in Division B.
My achievements include winning championships at the largest Scandinavian basketball tournament and a tournament across the Nordic countries.
One of my proudest moments was scoring 43 points in a game and I even had a dunk at the buzzer.
I am dedicated, driven and excited to take my basketball journey to the next level.
