Q: Tell us about your work in the UK.
Trecia-Kaye: I opened up a business in the UK. (I'm using the business name here now.) I accepted people from all walks of life, just regular Joe Schmoes to high caliber athletes in all areas -- cycling, soccer, and rugby.
I was also involved in a nationwide mentorship program where I would go into schools and talk about athletics and life after athletics. Sharing my story and the importance of having something alongside athletics because that's a very finite time period in one’s life. You can’t do athletics forever, but the opportunities it’s afforded people are immeasurable. I shared my experience of getting a strong education while doing something that I love and where it took me.
I was also a part of the London Coaching Foundation. It's an organization that focuses on mentorship and coaching disenfranchised youth in London boroughs. Also, working with a training partner, I developed another company -- SELF: Sporting Excellence Life Fitness -- which is along the same theme of providing mentorship and guidance to people coming up in the area.
