Fierce & focused! Β· My path is set and I'm ready to walk into my destiny! Who's ready to see me in that @teamusa uni at Tokyo 2020ne OLY?? πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ™‹πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

Coach Amina hard at work!? πŸ€©πŸ˜‰ Well of course I am--there's people out here depending on me β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’ but there's always time to catch a pose! πŸ˜ŽπŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜¬

With less than 100 days to go until the 2020ne Summer Olympic Games... 😎I THINK IT'S TIME TO START IT UP🀩 #SpecialShoutout to @maryland.tfxc for giving me to resources to get ready!! Ultra blessed to be back at my alma mater!! β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’ even moreso at the opportunity to give back to young athletes just like me!

Coach Amina’s athletes: β€œCoach Amina what is like being a professional athlete?” Coach Amina: β€œNow Understand track and field ain’t no cash cow, but I love what I do. This would have to hold true for you too!” ------------------------------------- Often when my athletes ask me this question, I have to add a joking undertone to soften the blow to this long-standing realty. Within the world of Track and field; being a black female high jumper already puts me even further behind the eight ball. I’m not afraid to speak on it--Let’s face it--There is NO parity in how professional, men and women, earn a living within their sport/specialty. The love for your sport and wanting to turn your athletic talent into a careerβ€”neither of those options should be a sacrifice. I am blessed to have the opportunity and the platform to spread the importance of this issue. I am excited to be a part of the push for real change with @paritynow !! *** ⚠️🚧 To sign up and find out more about what Parity is doing!!

GETTING TO KNOW πŸ‡¬πŸ‡© || Mr. Victor carried us (the athletes) to and from the track for this whole weekend! On Friday as we were traveling back from the track I was able to hear stories of Grenadian history. ☝🏾 Did you know Grenada has three home-made chocolate companies? The cocoa trees are grown locally in Saint George’s Parish!! β€’ β€’ β€’ Once we reach the hotel he hands me a bar of chocolate, he purchased for himself earlier at the chocolate festival and biscuits! What a day, right?!? Thank you to Mr. Victor!
