By Maria Young
Maria Young made history on the South Carolina basketball circuit during her college career. Proudly representing Limestone College, Maria showed everyone just how brightly her God-given talents could shine. Between the lines of those ninety-four feet of hardwood, Maria proved that she could meet, and exceed, her potential by setting numerous records every single year of her collegiate experience. Off the court however, Maria had some hard lessons to learn. Academically, she struggled--not because she lacked the intelligence, but because she lacked the will and encouragement that would allow her to soar as a student and an athlete.
This memoir takes you along for the ride of Maria Young's rise to greatness in basketball, education, activism, and life. God had a plan for her and it certainly didn't stop at basketball. We are welcomed into Maria's world--professionally and personally. Her memoir delivers an awe-inspiring look into her transformation and incredible personal growth. Despite internal trials that caused her to doubt her worth, her skill, and her purpose, Maria followed God and allowed Him to lead her to her place in this life. At 26, she is now making just as big of a difference off the court, as she did when she was on the court, and the world certainly shines a little brighter because of her passion. Be prepared...this memoir will light a fire in you to get up, take action in your own life, and join Maria on the frontlines of making this world a better place.
