I created Humble Development to have a positive influence on people all around the world. God has given me a gift to train and teach the game of basketball. It’s going on my fourth year with my company that I’ve created and I must say the love and support it has received has been such a humbling experience. You never know your worth unless you add hard work to your lifestyle! I’ve trained over 300 people in the last four years and to some I am a mentor, big brother, coach, role model and positive male figure in their lives. It’s a honor to serve God as He uses me to bless all the people that I am able to cross paths with. The moral of the story is to keep your faith strong even when you have doubts and use your “time” wisely! God gives us all time! Most importantly create good karma for yourself! Thank you to everyone who has trained with me and who has shown nothing but love to the movement, the growth and progress of Humble Development. I truly appreciate it.
