Hey I'm Emirson! My nickname is Stephen because I'm Steph Curry's biggest fan. I used to struggle with anxiety, but I've learned to use it to my advantage. It never completely goes away, but it gets better. I get nervous, I feel butterflies, but those are all good signs that I'm ready for the moment. Don't be afraid to fail - after all, you miss every shot you don't take. 16 years of constantly being doubted awakened that competitive spirit in me. I hate watching something happen from the sideline and not being able to do anything- it's the most frustrating thing ever. If there are 2 seconds left in the game and we're down 3 points, I will shoot a three pointer. I would rather miss than not try at all. That's just the way I am. And I hate winning by default :)
I am a HUGE basketball fan, for those who don't know this already! I'm a varsity player, 5-time MVP In my rec league, and about to be committed to a college for basketball.

You're one of a kind, Emirson - so nice, patient and laid back. And your basketball references are the best. Overall great chat
I really appreciate it Emirson... I happened to message you right after you lost a game, I'm so sorry. YET, you replied right away and you listened to me, and you didn't get frustrated, and you inspired me by your incredible story. If I had to face everything you had to face, I'm not sure I'd even be here. You gave me hope again... THANK YOU FOR THAT.
