In 2016-2017 I enrolled at the University of Central Florida and played with a semipro team the Orlando Stars, in 2018 I graduated from UCF with my bachelors in Kinesiology and played on the Orlando Splash.

It’s been a journey and I couldn’t have gotten where I am today without God, my family, and every single coach, friend, manager, that took a chance on me. They’ve become family God placed each and every one of them strategically in my path and for that I will forever be grateful.
