My basketball Career
I started playing basketball when I was thirteen years old. From the very first moment that I picked up a basketball, the sport has been my life. I worked extremely hard in high school to become as good of a player as I could so that I could earn a scholarship for college. I grew up in a single parent home, so I knew that it was going to be impossible for my mom to pay for college for my twin and I. All of the hard work paid off, and my sister and I were given full-ride scholarships to play basketball at the University of Wyoming.
After playing four years in college, I knew that I wanted to continue playing. I played with a Swedish teammate my first year in college. We remained friends throughout my college years even though she decided to return to Sweden. I sent her some game film which she sent to some teams in Sweden, and I was called by Umeå Comets two weeks later. I arrived in in Umeå in December 2003 and played the rest of the season there.
The next four years I continued my basketball career in Luleå. The last three years in Luleå ended in SM-Silver against Visby Ladies, Solna Vikings, and 08.
After my fourth year in Luleå, I decided to play for Solna Vikings, and that’s where I stayed for the next six seasons. Within these seasons, we were able to win two SM-Gold, two SM-Silver, and experience one year playing in the Eurocup.
After my sixth season playing for Solna Vikings, I decided that I needed a change. I decided that playing for Sallén Basket was the change that I needed to make.
This is my first season playing for Sallén. Everything from the club to the city of Uppsala feels good. I love my teammates, and I feel as though we have great chemistry playing together. I am really excited about the potential of this team, and it will be exciting to see how far we can go!
