Walking the course with Cara Robinson and Golfing World. Speaking about my golf game and how the game helps me on the track. Special thank you to Golfing World for their time and the opportunity to showcase a different side of me.

Wonderful sit down with the “Extremely Fast” Ato Bolden. This was a wonderful way to share a little bit of my story. Special thank you to Laura Arcoleo and IAAF for your time and for the opportunity. Complete video credit to IAAF.

Wonderful day attempting to teach Tim Lovejoy and Denise Lewis the Triple Jump.

In September 2014, I partnered up with the organization, Classroom Champions. There was an immediate attraction to the program because of their motto “Connect.Motivate.Educate.” There are many factors that make this program special but the most appealing one to me is the relationships I am able to create and build on with the students and teachers throughout the year. This is no one time school visit. This is an opportunity to hang out with my students. This could be via online or in class. We are constantly in communication through the pictures of ┬átheir completed projects and live Q&A. This program allows me to mentor students around the United States and teach valuable lessons they can use in their everyday lives. Building relationships with my students has given me additional motivation in my training and competition. I not only strive to be the best example on and off the track but also a great friend.
