My name is Bradley Branton Lightbourne and I am 16 years of age. I was born in Nassau, Bahamas and was raised in Harbour Island Bahamas.While living in Harbour Island, I played basketball in the youth community league and represented Harbour Island in several tournaments in Nassau and on the main land of Eleuthera.At the tournaments, several schools in Nassau expressed an interest in me and offered me opportunities to represent them in local and international tournaments in Nassau, Bimini, Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Las Vegas, Nevada. The experience gained in the various tournaments helped me to build confidence in my skills and an understanding in the benefits of being a team player. I was awarded MVP and Most Skilled Player in several tournaments and National High School Championships for high score and team work.
I was given a partial scholarship and currently attend Gateway Christian Academy in the tiny Island of Bimini in The Bahamas.I anticipate graduating high school in 2019 and aspire to further my education in teaching or engineering at either Florida Atlantic University, Florida State University or University of Kentucky.
During my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, praising God and playing basketball.Through God’s Grace and Mercy, I would love to make it to the NBA and then return home to teach and give back to children in the community. With your help, I can achieve my goal of attending college. I hope that you will help me no matter how small the donation. Every little bit will get me closer to achieving my goals. Thank you in advance for helping this Island boy achieve his dreams and opportunity to someday pay it forward to another island child.
