Why do you like playing sports? I get to do a lot of team bonding and I get to meet a lot of different people; also because I like being active and just having fun and I love entertaining people.

My advice to young kids involved in sports: Never compare yourself to others, and always have a positive attitude because it makes practice a lot better. Also, I would say always set goals and never forget about them and always try to achieve them when it seems impossible.
