Congratulations to WIL Member Cherina Johnson for publishing her first book! The following is an excerpt from her autobiography "Cute as a Button, Tough as a Girl" now available on amazon!
"Growing up people would often comment that I was pretty. This was passed down to me from my Creator through my very beautiful mother. This proved to be such an asset to me throughout my basketball career. People often underestimated me based on my looks. Many assumed that I could not play ball or did not initially take me seriously as a player, especially the boys. Once I recognized that at a young age, I used it to my advantage. Despite my outward appearance, there was another part of me that went unseen by the natural eye. I was a competitor and hated to lose. The inward part was more important than my outward appearance, which would repeatedly prove you should not judge a book by its cover."
