Jeremy Lin Gives Hope To Palo Alto Community

PALO ALTO, CA — Rising superstar Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks has finally given his hometown of Palo Alto, California exactly what it’s been seeking for quite some time: a second chance. With a decrease in median income to $118,000, citizens of the suburban city are starting to wonder if the economy will ever return to the burgeoning state it was once in. However, the recent success of Jeremy Lin has proven to the community that there is hope. “He’s a constant reminder that we really can reach our goals. Lin has showed us that we can use hard work and dedication to achieve a better life,” says Palo Alto High School senior Michael Covelli, an avid basketball player and Silicon Valley heir. Covelli is now planning to apply to Harvard University in the hopes that he can one day be like Lin and leave the streets of Palo Alto to start a new life.
