“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you” – Derek Jeter.
Hi, I’m well known by my nickname T.J. (real name Taja) and as you can see an avid Yankees fan! This is a quote that has guided me not just in sports but in every aspect of life. It makes it even sweeter that it hails from my favorite athlete of all time, Derek Jeter, short stop for the New York Yankees. I have always been called “little, small, or tiny” throughout my youth, but I decided my size did not have to define me. From the moment I became active as a young child, I made the decision to make it count, every practice, every game and now every rep in the gym!
