I was recently blessed with an opportunity to spend time with some local teenagers, all of which attended The Charter School for Educational Excellence in Yonkers, NY. It was an event sponsored by NBA Fit Week, where members of the NBA and the NBA D-League share their insight on the benefits of an active lifestyle, encouraging the youth to become more active.
Over 100 students were present in the auditorium, all very attentive and eager to hear what we had to share about our experience. They were extremely well behaved, which is impressive for such a large group. What was more impressive, however, was the questions and answer segment after our talk.
We answered questions about our motivation, our hopes and dreams, and our plan to reach those goals. It was very easy to see that these students were excited about the future and all the things they want to accomplish in the coming years. I’m thankful to have spent some time around some bright young stars!!
