Two-time Olympic gold medalist and former WNBA star Ruthie Bolton spoke to students in the Umoja, Puente, and Ethnic Studies programs at Solano Community College in Fairfield, California earlier this month. During her visit she spoke about her journey from being an underrated and under recruited college star to becoming an Olympic Gold Medalist and playing at the most elite level of women’s basketball. She also took the time to remind the students that the most pivotal moments of their lives can occur in the beginning of their own journeys.
“When you set your mind to something, that burning passion, you’ve got to pursue that,” she told the group of 60 students that attended the program. “I encourage you not to walk away from your dreams.”
After her speech she took questions from the crowd and provided an opportunity for the students to touch the Gold Medal she earned while playing for Team USA. Since her retirement from the game of basketball she has dedicated her efforts to helping others, and says that promoting positive change in others is what motivates her on a daily basis.
