Use Your Platform (with Sue Bird)
This week on Professional Troublemaker, Luvvie is talking to WNBA superstar Sue Bird about thinking BIG and maintaining expectations in the face of adversity. Bird, who “came out of the womb shooting hoops”, discusses the importance of authenticity as a gay woman in sports and gives insight on intersectionality, knowing your value, and the power of unity. Beyond making plays on the court, Bird discusses how she contributed to the WNBA’s impactful social justice movement, in which the league of 144 players used their visibility to support Rapheal Warnock in this year’s historical Senate race. She also touches on how team sports taught her valuable lessons like how to be disciplined, how to get along with others, and what it means to set and achieve goals. Listen and enjoy as we talk with Sue Bird about using your platform as a Professional Troublemaker!
