Recently I was invited and had the opportunity to attend and speak at the espnW retreat in La Jolla California at the Torrey Pines Lodge. This two-day retreat helped set the female sports agenda for espnW. espnW is a platform to help cultivate sports conversation for women, highlighting the importance of role models in sports. How sports can shape our lives. I have always championed the cause of women in sports, sports played a very important role for me when I was growing up as a child. I use my story and love for sports to help others see that they too can push past their obstacles. Nothing is impossible if you believe in yourself and have the courage to dream and espnW is a great platform to help others see this.
