Hi my name is Lili, I'm 17 years old and I'm in 10th grade at IVLA.
I'm playing basketball and I want to become a professional basketball player.
I'm from Hungary and I moved to Rome last year to play basketball there.
IVLA helps me a lot with studying and playing basketball.
I learned a lot a lot from last year in life and in basketball too.
I play for my national team
at the world championship I played against
Italy, I played against Russia, and I also had the chance to play against the USA,
which is a whole different world.
In basketball they are the best and they won the whole world championship!
It was a really good chance to play against them.
In 9th grade I spent time in a Hungarian public school and it was hard to schedule
in-person school and basketball training. It's much easier with IVLA
to do my schedule and trainings.
Usually I wake up in the morning, I study,
and then I will go to my morning practice, and before my afternoon
training that's the time when I usually study more and then I check
the IVLA calendar for what I should do today.
Usually when I come home for summer I have the time to spend a little more
time with my friends from Hungary from my
a really good friend in the national league too.
I usually write to my success coach, Matt, and he's helping me a lot with
school, and he's so understanding with the basketball trainings and
I want to study at a university in the United States because I think it's a good
opportunity to study and do basketball together.
After I hope I can play on a professional basketball team, so
maybe I will come back here to Europe to play with a club team
but I think to do school and basketball together,
the American universities are the best. Because after my basketball career I need a diploma to
find jobs and to continue my life.
So, I think it's the best option, at IVLA.
