A Plus Youth Program

I'm so excited to be a guest speaker along with Jason Collins, at the 2nd Annual A Plus Youth Program, "Principles to Live By Gala" in Seattle, September 3, 2013!

I will be sharing behind the scenes stories and where I got my inspiration for my upcoming book, hoop: the american dream.

The mission of the A Plus Youth Program is to use sports as a vehicle to provide the educational resources and character development necessary for student-athletes to succeed in life. To learn more about how you can help A Plus Youth Program, visit their website,

See you there?
