Rick is joined by track and field’s Shereese Cutler, “The Pretty Jumper.”
I held high school records in both cross-country and track and field. I attended college on academic and athletic scholarship, and now I compete professionally in the long jump.
I have a love for all sports and Muhammad Ali is one of my favorites. He was credited for being the first to use his athletic fame to make a difference in the world. From the, I understood that winning an Olympic medal would not be enough of a goal for me if I weren’t making the world a more positive place.
The Pretty Jumper
The pretty jumper is my athletic alias. Jumper, because I am a long jumper in the sport of track and field. The name “The Pretty Jumper” comes from my fictional hero, Sailor Moon, who calls herself “The Pretty Guardian” (of Earth). We actually have a lot in common – same zodiac sign, love for food (especially desserts), and we are passionate about helping other people. Nonetheless, my alias is a means to harness the attention I receive with my athletic talents. With it, I model, attract sponsorships, and public speaking. I try to redirect that attention to the projects I work on that help others…
