I can’t believe it’s already July! This month we had the opportunity to split up from the group as a whole and work on our own July Impact Projects. My team of Carlos, Tiara, and Tom decided to host a sports mentoring clinic at Belle Isle for kids ages 8-16.
When I think of specific experiences that have helped shape me into the man I am today, I think playing soccer throughout my life plays a major role. Soccer has taught me drive, determination, composure, patience, team work, communication, and most importantly leadership skills that are engrained in me forever. All of these skills are adaptable to ones everyday life, and when you bring them to the work place along with a competitive nature, good things are bound to happen. We wanted to have fun and teach the participants not only about the three different sports (soccer, football, and basketball) but also how to translate skills learned on the field to the classroom and eventually their careers.
Stay tuned for the month of August as we wrap up the fellowship!
