Episode 51. Determine Your Own Self-Worth!

Cayla George, a current WNBL basketball player in Australia, speaks out about her long journey in the professional world. From starting to play in the WNBL when she was 16 while attending the Australian Institute of Sport to her training now, 15 years later after competing overseas in the WNBA and going to the 2016 and 2021 Olympics with the Australian national team. Cayla talks about the places in which she found motivation- thinking about her goals, her family, a support system, and using tools she picked up from various specialists. With all this experience, Cayla decided to start a mentorship program in November 2019 and talks about her experience with her program so far. She talks about her struggles with confidence and how everyone goes through times when we may doubt ourselves but in the end we are not alone in our struggles. Along with individual struggles, Cayla highlights the struggles women and girls in sport face everyday and how she’s had to work hard to combat these. Aside from basketball, Cayla has other passions she talks about and reminds us there is a life to look forward to after sports. Cayla is optimistic, bubbly, and shares some important steps she’s gone through in her journey! “You've just got to embrace who you are and what you want to do in life, because you're always gonna have people on the outside, trying to dim your light.” - Cayla George
