Napheesa Collier's Comeback Story
On this episode of Comeback Stories, Darren & Donny welcome Napheesa Collier, 2x WNBA All-Star & 2019 WNBA Rookie of the Year. Napheesa talks about the competitive drive instilled in her at a young age, and how her determination took her to UCONN where she sharpened her skills against the best of the best. She details the mindset of being "too black for the white people, and too white for the black people", and how that can lead mixed-race children to become people pleasers.
Napheesa explains the challenges female athletes face on the road to motherhood, and how the blessings of a child outweighs any potential negative effects on a career. She then describes how she finds the time to take care of herself mentally, while keeping a tight schedule for her daughter.
