What a busy few weeks. Getting back into shape has been a total trip for me, but this week I headed down memory lane. I took some time out of my schedule to head back to my old stomping grounds in Lake Wales, Florida. The memories I have of my hometown are irreplaceable, this where my dream began! I paid a visit Lake Wales High School for my Each One Teach One giveaway and it was a great feeling helping out the kids there and giving them a great start to the school year.

Now that I’m older I can really see how important programs like Each One Teach One are, I created my foundation to help educate and assist our youth in building a solid foundation for when they hit the real world.I have to say, my visit back home was a humbling experience. I went to the old courts by my grandma’s house where I first had the opportunity to play organized basketball.

Coming back home gave me an opportunity to reflect on the progress I have made. I never want to forget where I’m from or how I grew up. In life, you take things for granted, but going back home reinforced my belief that hard work, determination and faith pay off and ultimately got me where I am today.Thank you, fans, for always supporting me and for following my blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Each one of y’all mean a lot to me.
