You are from Chesapeake, Virginia. What was your childhood like?
My childhood was like most kids I am the youngest out of 3 kids. I have an older brother named Kenny who has taught me mostly everything that I know about basketball and I have an older sister name Cassandra who is my biggest fan. I was raised with both of my parents living together so I am very blessed if I would say. My parents made sure I have the latest things so I could focus on sports and school instead being in the streets with the guys who gave up on their dreams. I had a strong supporting cast which consists of all the people in Virginia who believed in me and saw that I was determined to be successful. My family and friends never allowed me to get in trouble because they saw potential in me so they kept me on a straight path.
