You Won't Believe What This Young Basketball Phenom Has Been Up To!

When I see this young girl play basketball, see how much fun she's having and how much she's improved as a player over the years, it reminds me why I love being a part of this wonderful sport! 😄

So who is this young basketball sensation?  ⭐

Well her name is Karolina Ramirez, from Stuart Florida, and boy can she hoop! 🏀

The crazy part is she's only 10 years old! 😮

I feel like she has unlimited potential, and I'm very excited to see her grow in her basketball career! 👍

While most other kids her age are learning to dribble with their off-hand, Karolina is shooting 3-pointers with accuracy, two ball dribbling, dribbling on a treadmill, and even dribbling on a pogo stick!

She most recently showcased her abilities on the Ryan and Kelly show?! Woah so cool!

You can see her execute some pogo stick dribbling flawlessly, in the video below.

O and did I mention she was in a google commercial (at 1:55 in the video) as well?! 😮

One thing I really admire about Karolina, is that she works hard consistently, and focuses on improving each and every day.  👍

And you can see how much she's grown as a basketball player! 😄

Take a look at this video from 2016, then compare it with the next video from just recently.

She was even a great player as an 7 year old, but man look at how she's improved her skills!

If you get a chance to read this Karolina, you should be very proud of yourself 😃

I'm far from the only one admiring Karolina's work ethic though! 

She's got over 36K followers on Instagram (follow her at @karolinabball), and that number seems to be growing every day!

And West Palm Beach TV news did a story on her back in July as well, where her coach commented: "She's one of the most special kids I've been around. The thing that stuck with me right away was her work ethic, For her age it's very unique for someone her age to work as had as she works." 😎

So there's no question she's putting in the time and inspiring her followers all over the world, but does she enjoy what she's doing? 🤔

Heck yes she does! 😃

She definitely has fun with basketball and you can see how much joy it brings her. 

Her family shares her love for basketball too. 🏀

Karolina's parents have been supporting her love for basketball and ambition, since she was 4 years old. 

Karolina wants to play for UCONN, then play in the WNBA or overseas, and I think she can definitely do it! 👍

O and by the way, her brother Adrian, is quite the hooper as well.

Here's a video of them playing as the Incredibles on Halloween :)

So For The Love Of Basketball! 

Be like Karolina.

Work hard and love what you do.

Seems like a great recipe for success, and Karolina is living proof of that. 😃

Until next time,
