YESTERDAY IS NOT OURS TO RECOVER... BUT TOMORROW IS OURS TO WIN OR LOSE!

Hey I'm Emirson! Or Mason, that's my middle name. 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. 
I WILL ONLY STOP COMPETING WHEN MY HEART STOPS BEATING!!

he’s so good. he really cares, not just gives standard responses. before I talked to him, I always thought being afraid is a shame. Mason taught me otherwise..he showed me that real bravery is being terrified but not quitting
I don’t know if it’s just me, but something about his presence is just calming. Talking to him was like talking to an older brother I never had. When I started talking to him, I was crying but now I feel way better! Instead of just pitying, he tries to understand
Mas is an all-around amazing listener! He’s really sweet, caring, and positive! ❤️ I don’t trust a lot of people but it was very hard not to trust Mas. He put a smile on my face because he was really understanding, didn’t sugarcoat things but at the same time gave me hope! 💜 He’s professional but at the same time he’s chill, funny and so dedicated to basketball it’s freaking adorableeee! He made me feel relaxed and like someone actually cares. The world needs more guys like Mas 😁
He answered quickly, didn’t judge me, and made me feel safe. When he first picked up my request, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but he made me feel like he cares! Thank you so much, man, I know you’ll change the world some day
You’re the real MVP Emirson! I love how cool and laid back you are, while also being sweet and caring. Thank you for everything
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.
