Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career!

According to the USA Gymnastics website Williams is in the 11th grade and her favorite TV shows are "House of Payne" of "Meet the Browns." I can't wait to see Kayla set it off at the 2012 Olympics in London.
