Loseni Kamara: Midde School Elite Is His Home

 Loseni Kamara

Loseni is making his own history by using basketball to change his life at the very young age of 11 years old.  

He's a native of Africa, who now resides in Queens, New York. His road to success has not been an easy one. Loseni along with his family have face many difficulties, while living in one of New York City homeless shelters.
However, he is using his basketball talent and ability to make changes for his family and himself. "I know I’m good in basketball, but I know in order to help my family, I have to work hard in school and let basketball open doors for me," Loseni said.

Standing at 5'10" he's a force to be reckon with on the basketball court and is currently rank #1, 5th grader in New York City

He made his national appearance at the 2010 5th grade D2 AAU National Tournament in CoCoa Beach Florida in July.

Loseni has led the Hollis All-Star/ 5th grade team to the 2010 D2 AAU National Classic Championship and four NYC championships.

He has received four MVP honors and is burning up the basketball camp scene so far this summer, playing in advanced age groups. He was elevated to the higher level due to his domination in his class.

Loseni, is a very special player because of his thirst for acquiring knowledge of the game and his willingness to work hard on his own to help improve his game. 

His self-motivation is rare for his age. The camps Loseni has been invited are: LuHi, Five Star Sixer camp and NYC Nike Camp.
Loseni’s coach and mentor Donald Francois, feels that Loseni has a bright future in basketball and in life.
