    I've been told that some of the toughest people in this country are from the great state of New York and our guest today proves this to be VERT true on many levels.  Nicole Melious is a Superb girls' basketball player with more will power mentally and physically than your average individual. Today she shares her story of strength while also expressing gratitude to the people who have stood by her side through her career so far.
     
    She is one of the hardest working players I've watched through the lense of social media with offers from across the country to play at the collegiate level. I hope you will be inspired by the time and effort she puts into her game and development. Her journey may look easy watching her highlight reels but believe me she's gone through her own trials and tribulations and with her focus and drive I know she will reach her dreams...
