Jimmy Butler By Gavin Berryman and Tyler Stedman

Challenge: The story of Jimmy Butler starts with him being born in Houston, Texas. When he was a little child Butler was a homeless child and was kicked out by his mother. In a 2011 interview Butler specifically remembered what his mother told him, "I don't like the look of you. You gotta go." So after that Jimmy Butler lived with different friends from time to time. He did this for a few weeks and then moved from houses to houses staying with friends.
Courageous Act: By the time is senior year was about to start this guy who would become his best friend, Jordan Leslie had seen him. They both became friends on a second, and Jordan's family took him as their own child. Butler stated in an interview, "They accepted me into their family. And it wasn't because of basketball. She was just very loving. She just did stuff like that. I couldn't believe it.
Reflection Act: What Jimmy Butler has persevered through has inspired me (Gavin Berryman) to not give up on anything. Also, when life gets me down there is no way I can't give up just like Jimmy Butler. It has inspired me (Tyler Stedman) to focus my mind to something I can achieve it. Because no matter the circumstances I can preserve. Accomplis what I set out to do.
