LIU Brooklyn's Letava Whippy: My Family
"LIU's definitely been a great experience for me. It's changed my whole life, basically." - LIU Brooklyn's Letava Whippy
Whippy, a native of Fiji who attended high school in New Zealand, opens up about her life both on and off the court. The senior guard looks back on her choice to attend LIU Brooklyn back in 2009, and how her life took an unexpected twist prior to her arrival when she became pregnant with her son Kalae. Whippy remembers fondly the time spent exclusively with her son in that first year as a mother, and how her desire for both an education and to prove herself as a basketball player led her back to LIU. She goes on to reveal how her experiences at LIU have made her a better person and a better mother.
