Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

I was born in Ganja and started doing sport for the first time at the age of 14. One year later I was invited to Baku to join the junior team, and from 2006 I became part of the men's national team. I am the youngest player ever selected in the Azerbaijan national basketball team. Now I will play in the basketball 3x3 tournament, which I've been doing for two years now. I believe in putting all our strength into it, so we can achieve high results in our motherland.
