My Name is Kayla Marie Ortiz. I love Pizza and Chicken Alfredo pasta. My favorite Basketball Player is LeBron James. Growing up i always used sports as a way to take my mind off negativity. Eventually i fell in love with basketball in high school. I graduated from Brooklyn Collegiate High School with a 3.3 GPA and being third in my class. My passion for the game help me push and excel in school, which lead me to obtain a athletic scholarship to attend Concordia College. I have always been the type of person to continuously want to learn and grow and at Concordia this was challenging so I transferred to SUNY Purchase seeking great educators. I obtained a great education and had an outstanding career scoring 982 points in 2 years of attending. Being a natural leader i always knew i someday wanted to be a coach to give back the great opportunities that were given to me. Now i have the opportunity to give back both in the classroom and on the court, through my experiences and success I lead by example that anything is possible.
