My love of tennis really took off in high school. As a result of playing tennis competitively on the school team, I was able to get a four-year tennis scholarship to St. John’s University, an event that would help shape my career and life in general. While attending St. John’s, I was a member of the tennis team for four years and later became team captain, and I also participated in a number of extracurricular activities related to tennis. These experiences were extremely positive, endowing me with the teamwork and leadership skills, drive, and self-possession that would later serve me well in my career.
I have maintained my passion for the sport over the years. I am currently a ranked player in the U.S. Tennis Association’s senior division, and I do not intend to stop playing anytime soon. Additionally, I continue to participate in fundraisers for the St. John’s University tennis team. I cannot imagine how my life would have turned out without tennis, and I have no desire to live without it.
