So I was born in Cyprus. From a young age I was in sports. I did gymnastics for around seven years or eight years. After that I broke my elbow so I had to take a break. After two years, I started basketball with my coach, so that’s when I met with PeacePlayers. I still live with my parents and my sister. She’s two years younger than me. I love watching TV and I play volleyball with my sister.
My mom and dad were very helpful [to me]. They always supported me with my choices. Also, my teacher in fourth grade and fifth grade, he actually helped me with lots of stuff like not just lessons, actually with psychological [things] and some sports. We actually still see him with our families; we meet sometimes. He was very helpful with my life.
I have some idols – basketball players. My idol was Kobe Bryant; he was actually really helpful, while I was playing basketball. The way he played, the way he thought, the way he talked. Like he was different for me. He was a good man, in person, in basketball.
We followed up with Inci during the Games to hear about her experience in real time. Here’s what she had to say!
