VANECIA:You really need each other to succeed. These woman have always been by my side and have been there for me whenever I needed them, on and off the field.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

DANIELLE: While cheering in college, we often went out on to the basketball court with signs to cheer with the crowd. While we were cheering I noticed that the crowd was moving their arms around and I got so excited that they were dancing along with the cheer. They were actually trying to tell me that I was holding my sign upside down! Oops!

What is your biggest fear?

VANECIA:My biggest fear is the unknown. It terrifies me not being in control, and not knowing what is going to happen to me when it comes to career, relationships, and family.

What is your dream job?

DANIELLE:I would love to work in corporate social responsibility and decide how big businesses can give back to the community, employees, environment, and the rest of the world!

VANECIA: My dream job is to be a firefighter.
