"When I met the Williams family they told me about the JYD Project and all the things the organization does in the community. Mrs. Williams told me that they would be holding a Sport and Fitness camp over the summer and how excited they all were to be providing an outlet for kids. Being new to Las Vegas, relationships were something that I did not have and I thought it to be the perfect opportunity to meet some folks and be able to share my love of basketball with children the way it was shared with me. Without hesitation I told Mrs. Williams that i wanted to volunteer and coach! However, I did not know that at the moment I became a part of something so incredible and so overwhelming. Summer 2013 is a time I will never forget. I didn't just volunteer, I was able to put my skills, talents and creativity to use. I became a part of this family that included the William's, the kids, and the parents. I was giving my time, to what seemed to be, to selflessly help others but i learned more about myself. The amount of love and support that circulated in the gym was unmatched. The excitement in every child's eyes that walked through the door every morning was priceless. The fact that I had a hand in creating moments that impressionable children will never forget was beyond rewarding. In my adult life I have never been a part of something like this. I can't wait to blow my whistle again and hear the chants of all the JYD kids this summer. Thank you!
