My name is Dezerea Bryant (Dez Bryant) and I am currently a professional track and field athlete. I graduated from University of Kentucky in the year of 2015 where I received my Bachelors Degree, in Community Leadership Development. I was the first in my family to receive a college degree, so it was a pretty big deal! I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI where majority of the city is in poverty. I grew up in a family of 7 brothers and 3 sisters whom I love so dearly. I was blessed to be raised having very close relationships with both of my parents. I had a very good support system growing up but it didn't change the environment, the experiences or the things I was introduced to.While at University of Kentucky I earned two NCAA Individual titles, multiple SEC medals and many academic awards. I excelled very quickly in track and it gave me the opportunity of running as a professional. But that is just part of my life so I decided to start this blog to share some of my life experiences, to give encouragement, advice, and to also share my faith which is a huge part of my life. So feel free to give feedback, ask questions, give me topics to share, make comments, etc. I'm so excited for this journey, so let's have some fun!
