The importance of hard work and dedication was instilled in Crissa at a young age. At just 7 years old, she knew she wanted to become a professional basketball player and therefore, began working tirelessly towards this dream.
As she stayed true to herself, she furthered her career by graduating from Point Loma Nazarene University with a business administration degree.
She combined her two passions, basketball and fitness, and used her degree to start her own personal training business. Along with Crissa being an entrepreneur, she achieved her dreams and became a professional basketball player, 13th Woman to play for the Harlem Globetrotters.
She now travels all over the world inspiring thousands of young females and entertaining millions of fans.
Her profession is what geared her to start this organization. She constantly received emails and messages from her fans explaining their negative life experiences, such as bullying, depression, obesity, and how they need inspiration, people to look up to and communicate with. She instantly wanted to create an outlet for these girls to feel safe, loved, confident, and learn how to embrace their individuality and promote a healthy lifestyle.
Although she has reached her goals, she still strives to become the best overall person she can be. I AM Movement is an extension of her, to become one with the women of our future.
