I've been fortunate over my career to travel the world, not only to play basketball, but also to speak with different organization, CEOs, entrepreneurs, you name it. I've always tried to share the information I've attained over the years, in hope that it could help someone else.
I'll never forget giving a speech out in Pebble Beach, California, to a group called the Young Presidents Organization (YPO). Now many people who know about this organization might say, "What in the world could a female athlete have to offer some of the top business minds in our country?" I'm hoping by the end of this journal, that question and a few others will be answered for you.
My opportunity to receive a higher education, play at powerhouse UConn and travel the world came on the backs of many women before me. Women that believed a skinny, bold, long-legged girl from McKeesport, Pa., deserved the same opportunity as her brothers. They believed that young girls like me would one day benefit from their blood, sweat and tears. Then one day I could share my story with people around the world.
