“My childhood was one of the roughest and I realize that the lack of parenting and positive role models can often lead a child to a life of drugs, crime, etc. Society has kids growing up a lot faster today and many times they are being raised by the street. I look at the peers I grew up with and the fact that I’m one of the few successful ones that was able to thrive. Whether the majority of them are locked up, unemployed or on drugs, seeing this makes you realize that it could have been you as well. I was given an opportunity to do what I love, play basketball, and I hope to give other children opportunities to do what they love as well. My goal is to do what I can to change things for them and let them know that no matter where you come from you can always succeed.”
