1 Body Alumni – Mariah Jones
“Through my involvement on the 1 Body Basketball team, I have learned a lot from all of my coaches, but most importantly my mentor Coach Mike who has always had my best interest at heart and is always supporting me on and off the court. When I first started, I just moved to Orlando and I didn’t know much about basketball and I also lacked the confidence and the skills, but by being in 1Body, I have become a more confident person on and off the court and gained tremendous leadership skills which propelled me to have the current position of captain on my school’s varsity basketball team as a sophomore. Furthermore, by listening to the speakers that shared their testimonies at our practices, it has highlighted the value of dedication, discipline, hard work and what you can potentially achieve through sports. I am very grateful and blessed to have had the opportunity to be part of this great organization.” – Mariah Jones, Winter Springs High School class of 2021.
