The New Year will bring changes in my life. My goal is to move from Connecticut Avenue to the O Street market. It’s been more than two or three months, and I’m still waiting for somebody from the D.C. Housing Department to do the inspection. Once that’s done, my goal is to start fresh all over.

After I move, I want to go back to practice with my team, the MedStar NRH Punishers. We want to open our first wheelchair basketball game at the Capital One Arena. We’re hoping to submit a petition that will be approved. I’m not going to lie, I’ve been missing the game a lot. I’m not the only person who feels this way. All the players from all the different teams in our league say they want to have it back again. We want to have a season the same way the NBA has a season.

I always want to motivate other people, especially kids and other people with disabilities that ride in wheelchairs. I pray we will have our opening game at the Capital One Arena and people will be able to come and see us play wheelchair basketball. Happy New Year to everybody, to all the people who buy the Street Sense paper.
