We are happy to have you as a part of the A-Spire Magazine Family. We decided to turn the tables and interview you. We’ll get the obvious question out of the way. What was it like growing up with an iconic sports figure Jim Brown as a father?
Growing up with my father I didn’t know until I was older he was this iconic sports figure. I just knew him as dad. A single father that fought for me to be in his life, a father who was always there when I needed him, a man I could depend on. A father who consistently showed me how much he loved me through his actions. He definitely had the biggest impact on my life and raised me to be the woman I am today.
I learned a lot from my dad and I still do. He’s my hero and the best father I could ever have. I just appreciate him so much and thankful God chose me to be his daughter.
Growing up with my father was filled with lots of fun...parties every month, going to the Playboy mansion, shopping, having tons of friends over. I had an incredible childhood that I will never forget.
You play football, you’re a on air personality for the magazine and a mother. How do stay centered and balance all these things?
I stay centered by just focusing on the things I love to do and what’s important to me that are going to get me to where I want to go. Living in Atlanta has afforded me the opportunities to do just that. God has away of bringing it all together where everything just works out.
What is the most impactful thing you hope to accomplish?
The most impactful thing I hope to accomplish is meeting with our President to have him federally legalize marijuana. That is definitely a goal of mine as well as to establish a non-profit foundation to financially assist single mothers to receive a higher education or start their own business.
I’m currently working on bringing the “Daughters of Legends” together just as my father brought all the top black athletes to fight for Muhammad Ali in 1967 so we too can make an impact and begin our activism work.
We are doing mantras all this year. Do you have one you live by?
“I can do it.” The only limits are the limits I place on myself and I want to be limitless.
What’s coming up with for you in 2019?
I’m still in football season with the Atlanta Steam. We have our last game August 3rd at the Infinite Energy Arena and with that win we will be heading to playoffs in Los Angeles August 26.
I will continue being a media correspondent for A-Spire magazine and bringing you in depth interviews. I have some appearances scheduled to help raise money for great causes and help to inspire the next generation. I hope you will see me on the tv/big screen soon too.
