Reason for joining SforS: “I joined Showtime For Stars because I knew I wanted to help others achieve their full potential. It was not an easy journey for me throughout my athletic career, and looking back I wish I had the opportunity to work with an organization like this. Helping our future student-athletes develop and grow into our future leaders is the most rewarding job. I want to show kids that the impossible is possible, and that they should believe far beyond their circumstances.”
