Q: What's your daily routine like?
A: I usually wake up in the morning, brush my teeth and go upstairs to have a coffee, yogurt and watch TV with my siblings. Then after about an hour I get ready and go out to the field for my daily workout. Once I'm done with that, I come back and shower, then make some lunch. After lunch, it varies, I mainly try to just stay busy. Whether it's basketball with my little brother or movies on Netflix. I try to avoid being bored for the rest of the day.
