Growing up, Tamika Catchings suffered from profound hearing loss, bullying, and the anguish of her parents' divorce. But she wasn't about to allow those challenges to determine her destiny. Through perseverance and God's grace, Tamika became one of the top female basketball players of all time.
Catch a Star is her story of overcoming. Of leading the Indiana Fever to its first championship. Of being named one of the WNBA's top fifteen players in history. Of earning three of her now four Olympic gold medals. And of founding the Catch the Stars Foundation to help young people achieve their dreams.
Her story will inspire you to face your doubts and fears and reach for your own dream, no matter what challenges come your way.
