"I decided to be a part of S and F Athletes because of the positive direction they provide to students. This organization allows students to feel better about themselves, so they know that they matter. I believe kids have the capability of becoming whoever and whatever they want to be. This organization allows me to help guide and direct their path to a better life.”
"I saw there was a need to help kids. They needed positive guidance. So I started mentoring. I'm one that loves helping those in need and making a difference."
