what is the importance of the prop in your photograph?
The basketball represents how sports was an important part of my development from childhood to becoming an adult. I have shared the sport of basketball (17 years) with my son, family and other children in our community. I have seen that being involved in a sport can have an impact on a child's life. It helps them to focus on school while growing up. I'm sure my son and family will carry on this trend by sharing the game of basketball with their children as well.
