"I’ve learned a lot about myself. I would definitely say mental toughness—just being able to get through things. You can work so hard at something, and sometimes, the results won't reflect the hard work you put in. But, being able to keep striving forward, keeping your head up, and continuing to focus on your career and your own path was a goal of mine. You know, I challenged myself (with that). So being able to develop in that, and go through trials and tribulations to get to where I needed to be, is something I've definitely learned."

— Zavier on things he has learned about himself throughout this journey.

The Spotlight Series

Gabe Brown

Professional Basketball Player

"I would say, “Never give up on your dreams, always take what you want to get out of it, and always find that one thing that you're good at—and be great at that one thing.” There's a lot of guys in the NBA and the college level that are good at one thing. They excel at it. Also, I (would) say: “Coming in as a freshman, sometimes you're not going to be the main player on the team. You gotta find a way to impact the game without scoring the ball. If you can do that, then everything else will fall into place and your game will take off sooner than later.”"

— Gabe on pieces of advice he would give to someone who wants to play basketball at the collegiate and pro level.

Diamond Johnson

College Basketball Player

"I would just say, “Work hard, take your time, and just have fun with the game. If you have fun with the game, you're gonna want to work hard and stuff is going to come naturally. It's not easy to get to the collegiate level and be a star or be a good player. So just keep working hard and being patient. Everybody has different times where different things come up for them, so don't be so hard on yourself—have fun, work hard, and be a good person.”"

— Diamond on pieces of advice she would give to someone who wants to play basketball at the collegiate level.
