Jasmine Thomas Reflects On National Girls And Women In Sports Day
February 1, 2017
Basketball has positively attributed to the person I am today because it allowed me to have experiences that might not have been possible without sports. I was able to attend the prestigious Duke University and get an outstanding education that my family couldn’t afford had I not been on an athletic scholarship. Now, I’ve been fortunate to travel around the world experiencing different cultures as a professional basketball player. I’m proud of the person I’ve become and along with my faith and family basketball has played a huge part in that.”
