As an athlete that came from an underprivileged situation, I was never taught about money because we didn't have any.
I didn't even know what an Entrepreneur was until I was 19 years old.
I was told to just focus on basketball and that really put me behind in the actual game of life.
If there was a program that offered the education when I was a youth, I could have made much more of an impact on my community.
For that reason... I'm taking on the responsibility of teaching as many student athletes about financial literacy, Entrepreneurship and making healthy choices so that they can not only stand on their own and take care of themselves when the sport ends.... but do the same for the generation following them.
I ask that you join me in this effort by donating any amount that you desire to support our cause. Your support will allow us to bring our program to more schools, therefore educating more student athletes.
