This is the question. Briefly elaborate on one of your activities(extra - curricular, personal or work experience). Attach your response on a seperate sheet. (150 words or fewer)

A minute more to go. How were we going to make six points in one minute. We perseveered, but that was not enough. The referee blew the whistle; I stood there in disbelief.

I began playing basketball at age7, and still spend most of my leisure playing it. I have met the most gregarious and the most choleric people whiles playing basketball.

This ,in other words, is teamwork. Teamwork is one invaluable lesson basketball has taught me,and it works wonders even outside the spheres of basketball.
