Averazse Parrish

Unified Partner • 24 • Shakopee, MN • Basketball

"Being chosen for Team USA, it means alot. I know all the athletes work really hard but I have pushed my teammates to keep working harder than last year. It means the world to them and berings me an unspeakble joy knowing they get to be a part of it. To keep helping my temmates become better on and off the court. To model a goal they want to reach and help them reach it. I want SO to grow in my area and have more sports options."

Parrish enjoys coaching, working out and family game nights.

"Being a Unified partner with Special Olympics has helped me understand how to the help. It has shown me that winning is not about the score but more about learning or trying something new and it's also changed my outlook on how to be a leader."
