My name is Tiffany Khoeses and I am 17 years old. I am a learner at Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School and I am in grade 11. I was born in Windhoek and I am currently living with my grandparents in Katutura. When I was younger I used to live with my parents but when they moved out of Katutura we decided that I should stay with my grandparents because they live closer to my school.
I used to school at A.I. Steenkamp Primary School. My friends tried out for the school’s basketball team, I had nothing to do so I went to the try-outs. Sadly I didn’t make it to the them, but my determination for doing things people think I cannot do was quite strong. So I kept going back to the basketball court until the coach invited me to practise with them. From the school team I was chosen for the BAS trials. Frank Albin was our coach for the try-outs. Luckily I made it to the BAS family and ever since I started going to BAS my life took a huge spin.
I had less time to spent in the street. Suddenly my life started becoming productive. BAS has helped me become a better person, as it taught me many values that I am going to keep forever.
In the future I want to become a neurologist or any kind of medical doctor.
