If you have been involved in community service projects, which has been most rewarding and why? Helping coach a youth basketball team has been the most rewarding project I have been involved with. When I participated in youth basketball, I remember admiring the high school players who would take time to help us youngsters. Their kindness and dedication inspired me to follow in their footsteps. At the time, I did not realize how much of an impact they had on me, but they changed my life. Now, as I help coach the youth teams, I hope to create that kind of impression on others’ lives as well.
