    It has been a privilege and an honor to be an athlete at Harvard these past four years. When I compare my athletic experience to those of my friends playing at other schools and other leagues, I feel even more fortunate that I was able to continue to play the sport that I love at a school that valued both my desire to play on a highly competitive team, with fine coaches, access to amazing facilities and resources, all while being able to take the classes that I wanted to take, and to be part of the larger Harvard community.

    My story as a Harvard basketball player begins way before I ever stepped foot on campus, took an SAT, or played in a high school basketball game. During my first week of high school, I wrote a letter to my future self, describing my goals for the next four years. While some of my aspirations were broad, my top goal was very specific: I dreamed of playing basketball at Harvard. In my eyes, the combination of academic and athletic excellence was truly unparalleled.
