Did you also gasp in shock upon first seeing Skylar Diggins? To be honest, we assumed as much. This stunning 29-year-old is an NBA star with the Phoenix Mercury of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA). Diggins’ meteoric rise to prominence began after the Tulsa Shock selected her third overall in the 2013 WNBA Draft. And in 2014, she was also honoured as the WNBA’s Most Improved Player, making her a four-time WNBA All-Star. Diggins’s off-court activities include posing for publications like Vogue.
American Olympian Hilary Knight, a professional ice hockey player, is one of the most powerful persons in her field. As far back as she can remember, Knight, who is now 31 years old, has always been a musician. She is a forward for the PWHPA and the U.S. women’s ice hockey team at the moment. Besides being a world-class ice skater, model, and participant in the widely recognised #LikeAGirl campaign, Knight is the epitome of a positive role model for young women everywhere.
