DOB: 2001
School: Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School

My name is Jinola Garises, I’m 18 years old. Currently I’m in grade 11 at Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School.
I was born in Windhoek and still live in Windhoek, in Gemeente, Katutura. I live with my grandmother. Not with my mom, because she lives far from the school.
My grandmother is a domestic worker, I believe she doesn’t get enough money to provide everything in the house.
I became part of BAS through the Namibian Basketball Federation. By practising Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. Some days we practised at school.

BAS has done a lot for me, in many ways since I started until now and I appreciate it all. We won the Primary School league in 2015 and I was the MVP for that league. At the High School league, we were the champions and I was also the MVP for that league.

After passing grade 12, I would love to study at the Namibian University of Science and Technology.
