I had the great opportunity to speak to the awesome guys at The Section 357 Show, a podcast that just celebrated it's 4th year and 341st episode! Love how they called our interview The (Global) Full Court Press - think I may have to change the name of the blog!? Lol. We'll see.
On the show, I spoke about my sports experience in Ghana, Lebron going back to Cleveland, the state of playground basketball and more. As I have said in my previous post on my trip, it was certainly an eye... mind, body and soul-opening experience that changed my perspective on sports and how it can affect world change. The principles that I as a young woman learned from organized sports are still being used in my life today, nonetheless, I was not aware or maybe just not conscious that this opportunity was not as available to my young women counterparts across the globe.
Granted, there are some women that play basketball and are involved in sports in Ghana and beyond, nonetheless the amount of girls involved in sports in NYC is half that of young boys (via PowerPlay, NYC), so the numbers are even lower when it comes to countries that are still undergoing development.
I hope to contribute to women's sports globally very soon and have plans to in 2015 so stay tuned!
