"Basketball has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, so I am extremely grateful to have been given the opportunity to play at the next level right here at home with the Memorial Sea-Hawks. Being able to continue to play in front of friends and family and to represent our province is something really special to me. I'm super thankful for everyone who has supported me and helped me reach this point, and I look forward to continuing my studies at Memorial University."
