Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: Hi my full name is Judith Brittany Wallace. I am a former student (Rutgers University ‘06-‘10) and professional athlete (Belgium). For the past decade I’ve been working as a professional chef and I currently work at a treatment facility center for children with developmental disabilities and/or on the autism spectrum in Upstate NY! I am also an emerging author. I wrote a book called Groundwork 29: Books, Ball & Beyond, an experience based manual to help black and brown athletes navigate the ups and downs of being a student athlete. This book also addresses the fact that more than 98% of college athletes become professionals in other avenues & I wanted to spark that much needed conversation. The book will be coming out hopefully by the end of June. For the past 5 months however, I’ve been heavily engrossed in the digital collectibles/crypto art space. I run the topshotcallers page on IG & Twitter keeping up with things in NBA Top Shot, but my proudest venture in this space is 21 Titles, a crypto media page hi lighting black and brown creatives in this space.

To become the highest expression of myself, I don’t even know what that looks like lol but I want to get there.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The Pandemic taught me that an investment in yourself is always pays back the best dividends. During the Pandemic, I was very involved in investing in myself, I learned to invest in stocks, I spent more time in nature and I read a lot of books!
You must invest in yourself so you can eventually invest in others!
What is a message you would like to give others? : Believe in your genius! When you start your journey, your tribe will find you.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: I’m born on a leap year, so I have a real b-day every 4 years.
