Athletes to Watch
I met Yolanda in 1989 when she read about my accomplishment of being named the first African American female swimmer to win an NCAA Division I championship at Boston University, becoming the university’s only All-American in women’s swimming! She put me on the world’s stage at the time and introduced me to the sports community elite. She has continued to do the same for my daughter Sloane Stephens (Professional Tennis Player) whom she has followed since she was a teenager! Her ability to spot talented women athletes is uncanny!
