More than anything, this talk was a real boost of endorphins! Batouly Camara is a real force of nature. She made it on Forbes 30 under 30 list for her inspirational work as the founder of W.A.K.E, a nonprofit built to educate, equip and empower young girls through sport, education and social entrepreneurship that is now working to launch one of the first all-girls elite boarding schools in West Africa!
Batouly made three Final Four appearances with the University of Connecticut’s women’s basketball team and now plays professional basketball in Spain! We spoke about how sports has shaped the go-getting entrepreneur that she is today, and how she manages her numerous projects, which span from speaking engagements, to writing her very own children’s book, alongside her business and the rigorous training schedule that comes with being a professional basketball player.
