About me

“Not only is there more to life than basketball, there’s a lot more to basketball than basketball” - Jackson had a simple philosophy when he was coaching the Lakers. He wanted everyone to succeed and grow in the service of something bigger than themselves. This is what struck me the most. A simple, badminton player accidentally fell in love with basketball so much that she decided to become an NBA writer at EssentiallySports. My love began after I started watching LeBron James highlights and his gameplay was so refreshing for me, I had to utilie my English degree to start writing about him and the sport. Today, as an NBA writer, I am writing for not just Lakers but many other players and teams, sharing my passion with my son and my daughter. But when I am not writing, you’d find me on my couch watching Lucifer, Grimm or even Bridgerton! Want to know more about me? Hit me up on the following links:
