Simrah Ahmad, Freshman

“I am fasting for Ramadan during school. I have to skip basketball practice, which I know might affect how I play in prepare for summer league. I still make sure to observe what is happening so I understand what to do, though it is difficult since I am not actually participating as of now. People think fasting is not necessary or that it is useless, but I think it is all worth it. Fasting teaches me to be a better person and to be patient, and it reminds me not to take the things I have around me for granted,” freshman Simrah Ahmad said.
