Basketball is my passion; watching it, but especially playing it. Having the adrenaline rush through my veins and the roar of the crowds I would love to be an NBA superstar. Of course with the job comes millions of dollars with each contract, countless hours of television time around the world, and community work. Greed is not a problem which is why I want to use this opportunity to change the world. With the television time I could promote several causing either individually or with an organization. Myself and others could spread awareness during televised games for fans can donate and send care packages to those suffering in Africa from poverty, and the abuse the children are experiencing. With the medical center in my hometown of Houston, I can work with cooperating doctors to discuss opening a couple homeless shelters that provide free healthcare. These shelters would get many of our brothers and sisters in Christ out of danger in the streets and given a kick start to a better life. The shelters would provide toiletries, warm meals, offer housing, and have a human resources department to help those in need find a job they would like depending on area of interest. Also the shelters would offer free classes ranging of topics of finances, starting and maintaining a healthy life and family, bible study, drug/alcohol recovery, and an outreach program for the attendees can go out and spread the word to improve the lives of others throughout the city.
