Kessie J.
Women's Basketball, Spain

I would have to say the games, community service activity, and making new friends would be my favorite aspects of the trip. I enjoyed seeing how other teams play basketball compared to how we play in America. I also enjoyed connecting with local youth during our community service activity. Making friends with complete strangers was absolutely amazing because we became so close so fast! If you are unsure about attending a Beyond Sports Tour, I would definitely recommend following your heart and pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
