DOB: 2001
School: Immanuel Shifidi Secondary School

My name is Al-ticious Links and I am a 17 year old boy, born on the 25th of April 2001 in Windhoek. I am a Damara/Nama speaking person and I can also speak Afrikaans and a bit of Oshiwambo. I am a type of person who likes meeting new friends and socializing with others. I also like playing ball games especially football and basketball, electronic games are also a part of my favourites. I also enjoy dancing, listening to music and just having fun.
Being a person who likes playing ball games I was driven by my interest in basketball to join the afterschool program held by German volunteers at the Basketball Artist school in Katutura. I was told a lot of interesting facts about the program by friends who were already part of BAS. The program offers tutoring, basketball practise and lunch at no cost. I really wanted to be a part of the BAS program.
I joint BAS in 2012 whereby I was chosen by Coach Frank because I was a fast learner and managed to learn the basics very fast.
BAS changed my life completely. When I joint BAS I became a new person. My life before BAS was a whole mess and it was fun then, like when school was out I just dropped my bag and went to the streets.
BAS helps me to understand the purpose of school. They not just helped me school wise. They also taught me the principles and values I need to achieve good results in life and achieve my dreams and my dreams are to finish school and reward the people who helped me made it in life.
