What does it mean to be a modern woman?
A modern woman isn’t monolithic. She is audacious and authentic. She chooses the path she wants for herself. She fully accepts herself and trusts that she’s wonderfully and perfectly made. She makes decisions that serve her and contribute to etching her legacy in this world.

When does a girl become a woman?
When a girl has the agency, aptitude and ability to take control of her life is when she becomes a woman.

How do you handle disappointment?
Faith and fear can’t coincide. I handle disappointment by knowing that my steps are already written. Though things didn’t play in my favor at the time of disappointment, they are small building blocks to the journey that’s already paved.

What's been a picture-perfect moment in your life?
WNBA All-Star 2018, a four-year-old walked up to me and put my media pass around her neck. She stared at me in awe. The next day, her father contacted me and said “Liliana couldn’t stop saying ‘Daddy, she has hair just like mine.’” I’ll never forget that moment.

How do you handle stress and pressure?
Stillness. We often underestimate the power of being still. Stillness creates balance in life and it’s a deliberate ACTION. It is a conscious, active choice to press pause when your soul encourages it. It is knowing that though you’re magical, you are not a magician. Also, pressure is a privilege. That is the perspective I carry.
