Today I'm featuring a lovely young man, Ben Williams who in my opinion will become a well known name in the world of NZ sporting and even international. Ben is a basketball player, currently in Auckland and I came across him when my brother told me about his aim to raise money to take him to train at Impact Basketball Academy across the globe in Las Vegas. Growing up with sport being a huge part of my life, I'm well aware of the dedication and hard work involved to get yourself ahead and pursue it further. I never really had the dedication myself and completely gave up on sports all together (whoops), but I can really recognise and admire Ben's hard work that has gotten him this amazing opportunity which he so rightfully deserves. Ben's video (which will be linked below) outlines his love for the sport and gives insight to his character, which anyone could see to be a young man with a very bright future ahead of him. So in saying this, watch the video, and please pledge to Ben's cause and be in to see his journey to some pretty great things that I know he is capable of.
