I have a double passion for art and sports, which can be hard to combine. I’ve been playing sports for about 10 years now and have been lucky to experience both team and individual sports. I play basketball, volleyball, cross country, track and field, golf and tennis. Given that athletics is such an important part of my life, I’ve learned many values that I can not only use in sports, but which also apply to my everyday life.
Art is also a huge part of my life. Due to my love for photography, I wanted to incorporate it into my column so I’ve decided to use header images that are photographs of me playing my sports. I will be photographed by Michelle Ton, an amazing photographer from Sunset Media Wave, who will capture action shots to portray my athletic interests. I am super excited to share my story, talk about how the values learned in sports can be used in life and hopefully inspire some of you along the way.
