Natalie Chou plays college basketball for UCLA. She just finished her redshirt junior season after transferring to the Bruins from Baylor University.
Natalie played her high school basketball in Plano, Texas where she helped her team to a Texas 6a State Regional Championship in 2015 and was a Mcdonald's High School All-American in 2016.
She was a member of the USA Basketball U17 squad that won a Gold Medal in the FIBA U17 World Championships.
Chou's mom Quanli Li played basketball for the Chinese National Team.
On March 26, Chou wrote a first-person piece for ESPN on the anti-Asian racism that has taken place amidst the Coronavirus outbreak.
Today on the podcast, we talk to Natalie about why she wrote that piece for ESPN, the emotions she felt in seeing her season come to an abrupt end, how we can all be better in the words that we choose to call this pandemic, the impact her mother has had on her life and why her faith in Jesus has helped sustain her during this time of uncertainty.
