According to the indomitable DeeDee Trotter, “success calls for a never give up mentality, faith, belief, and patience.” This adage which the 400 meter runner manifested herself models the life she has lead as a professional track and field athlete. Touching on the hardships she endured and the real struggle of actually pursuing this daunting dream, DeeDee paints an honest and inspiring story about what it takes to achieve your goals. I had a wonderful conversation with this incredible woman and I hope that you enjoy my interview with the the Glitter-Face Warrior.
