For anyone who has been counted out or doubted by others - used that negativity as positive motivation to achieve dreams. My entire basketball career I have been underrated and told I was too small. I’ve learned when you’re striving to be great you will always be met with opposition. However, Stay Faithful, Believe in Yourself and make a Commitment to Excellence. When naysayers are asleep, make sure you wake them up!
