Shereese Cutler, Track and Field, ‘The Pretty Jumper’

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…

Gabby Thomas, Olympian, Lenovo’s ‘Just Watch Us’ Campaign

Rick is joined by Gabby Thomas this week. Thomas won both a silver and bronze in Tokyo and is the third fastest woman all-time in the 200 meters.

A graduate of Harvard University, she studied neurobiology and global health as an undergraduate. While at Harvard, Thomas won 22 conference titles across her three years of athletics in six different events, setting the school and Ivy League records in the 100 meters, 200 meters, and the indoor 60 meters. She is now doing postgraduate work at the University of Texas.

Gabby is partnering with Lenovo for a new campaign.

Lenovo’s “Just Watch Us” Campaign for ThinkPad Z.

Just Watch Us will position the new ThinkPad Z as the technology that has arrived at the most opportune time in history to help create change: a tool that will not only allow Gen Z +Y to excel in the new world of work, but to power their ideas that will imagine, create and define the future. This campaign will activate a call for the trailblazers to rethink and reimagine what’s next; they will be the face, the voice, and inspiration of the campaign.

Gabby is a Lenovo user and her passion for health and technology, including how she is using smarter technology to drive health equity outcomes and reform the healthcare industry to better serve historically disadvantaged communities.

Have a listen and best of luck to Gabby.
