I am so happy that I earned a position on the Lithuanian National Team roster this summer. Even though I am the youngest on the team, I feel very welcome by my older teammates.
Every player besides me plays professional basketball somewhere in Europe, so it's been great to hear about their different experiences. All the ladies are very nice off the basketball court, but when it comes to the practice and game time, you have to fight for your spot and leave personal matters behind.
No matter what, I enjoy playing with these experienced players. I am impressed by the way they play. Just having this experience is key for my growth as a basketball player. They are playing smart, high-quality basketball and I'm learning something new every minute.
The only thing I can do now is continue to work really hard and show my best! I am determined to keep my spot on this team and am willing to do whatever it takes.
