“I am extremely excited for the Glory to give me the chance to be a role model for little girls in the area. Just a few years ago I was in their same position trying to find girls I could look up to and they weren’t as accessible as we will be now. It’s so awesome knowing we will be making an impact on some little girl with big dreams.”
