Lex Urban and This I Believe

Each week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this week by Lex Urban.

Lex Urban learned a different lesson on his Little League ballfield - one he’s carried with him to this day. After college, Urban performed a year of full-time community service and civic leadership as an AmeriCorps member of City Year in Washington, DC. Urban still lives in Washington DC, where he practices law.
