When I received my acceptance letter from NYU, I was shocked.
Maryland, Fordham, UChicago, and a few other schools had just rejected me.
I never knew that I was capable of getting into a good school without playing basketball.
Just like everyone around me, I was convinced that it was luck.
But it happened.
At first, it was overwhelming academically.
It seemed like all of these private school kids knew so much more than me.
Nobody looked like me or came from where I’m from.
I felt really out of place and wondered if I was truly meant to be here.
Then I realized that I was here for a reason.
I started a business at 16.
I got excellent grades while playing varsity basketball.
And most importantly: I applied to the school.
