A woman of many accomplishments and yet determined to impart her talent with our girls here in the Philippines. Our girls  who qualified for the Alaska JR NBA/WNBA are really lucky to be able to meet and greet her and even learn a trick or two during the 3 day national training .

I was lucky enough to get a chance to meet Ruth and video some of her interviews during the meet and greet for media at the Marriot Hotel last April 23,2015.

see you again on Sunday Ruth Riley
