Everyone has a story and this edition of “My Story” explores the unique life and career of Rochelle Coleman. Coleman used her love of basketball to fund her college education, earning a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree and travelling all over the world to such countries as Tibet, South Africa, and Kosovo. As a member of Peace Players, she also assisted in bringing Israelis and Palestinians together on the basketball court to further facilitate peace in those countries. Coleman used her skills as a basketball player and her entrepreneurial business expertise to form her company, which helped further her sports career. She inspires others to use their hobbies and skills by taking them to a higher “level” and helping impact the world in a positive way.
