My team is very much outgoing like DWB. Being Puerto Rican, we are notoriously loud and always joking around. Dancing is in our blood so wherever we go there is always someone dancing or singing Spanish trap.
I have learned how to play for something bigger than myself. Playing for my national team means that I am representing an entire country and all its people. I can take that back to any work that I do and put everything in a bigger picture, bigger than myself.
The biggest difference between what I’m used to is adapting to new places to “live”. Because on constantly going to new countries and moving apartments after each tournament, I’ve had to adapt to new environments very quickly to be able to perform my best on the court.
My favorite memory was probably scoring my first points in the World Cup. It was just an unimaginable dream to even be there, then to even be playing, and finally to even score! Also. Looking up and seeing my whole family cheering for me and telling me after every game (win or lose) that they are so proud of me.
