Meet Gazmin "GG" Mason - The First African American Woman to Win Singles & All-Events Gold in Bowling for the USA Olympic Team

Gazmine "GG" Mason is a powerhouse and inspiration to young Black girls everywhere who may want to breakthrough in a sport or industry where there are few people who look that they do.

GG talks with In My Shoes about her career as a pro-bowler, what it's like to see very few people who look like her in the sport. She discusses how she got started, what she hopes to achieve and why she believes the sport sometimes doesn't get the respect it deserves.

Learn about GG and what she stands for and her initiatives Black Girls Can Bowl 2 and Got Game.

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
