AZAIYAH FELDER


Hi my name is Azaiyah Felder and I play on CT Heights AAU Basketball team .My number is 11. I am a 7th grader at Sedgwick middle school. My favorite subject in school would have to be math because I like solving math problems! My least favorite subject would be Language Arts because I don’t like reading all that much. My favorite basketball player is Stephen Curry because he is a very good shooter, and good dribbler. My favorite rapper is Drake and his song one dance! I started playing basketball when I was 10 years old at the Boys and Girls Club. Throughout the years of practicing and playing basketball at the Boys and Girls Club I feel that I have improved tremendously. When I started playing basketball my other coach was Coach Ray, and he used to help me on my left hand dribbling and in addition this helped me get better at my layups.
I remember him telling me to have someone throw a tennis ball in my right hand while I was dribbling with my left hand. I have been getting better and better in fact now I’m playing with 8th graders! I have learned to control my emotions and I am constantly learning how to be a presence on the court. When I grow up I want to be the first woman in my school to go to the NBA. I understand that in order for me to do that I have to succeed in school, and be the best I can be. Coach Kris is a very good coach and she pushes me to strive for more. I want to be like her when I grow up. I am proud that I have the opportunity to be on this team because not just anyone can play for an AAU team, it requires skill, hard work and dedication. Not only can I see the potential within myself, so can my coaches!
