Joe Odhiambo speaks to students about kindness and respect

November 5, 2014

Joe Odhiambo is originally from Kenya in East Africa. He is the Goodwill Ambassador for the NBA. His humble upbringing taught him the drive and work ethic which has allowed him to become the best in his class. Odhiambo now communicates these tough life lessons and experience to his audience. He spoke about kindness, respect, responsibility and cooperation.

He strongly believes that even though we start the race in different places, at the end of the day, what you put in is what you get back.


"Mr. Joe" was even kind enough to spend time with the children after his performance was over, ensuring that each child had a turn spinning the basketball.
