  1. Hi Ms. Cash
    My daughter and myself met you at the Nike opening dinner in Phoenix AZ. Thank you very much for being our guest speaker. Your words were very meaningful to my daughter. You took a couple of pictures with Jazmyne and her team. She was the one asking you all the questions and asked about if and when you where able to dunk. Jazmyne has signed with UNLV. We would really love to send you the pictures that you took with her and the team.
