Tia Watkins – Washington, DC

Tia Watkins plays with her son, Shawn Watkins Jr. before her football practice with the D.C. Divas at Spingarn High School on Wednesday July 20, 2016 in Washington, DC. The D.C. Divas is a full-contact female football team. Among the things that motivate her to play a sport not widely known as
a women’s sport is the role model she can provide for her children.
“Having a son, I’m showing him to respect women and that women can do
anything you can do.” For her daughter Tia believes that having Jori
watch her play football will result in her having a greater “sense of
self” as well as “increasing her confidence and just showing her that
I can be whatever I want to be , even if it’s not playing football. If
I want to be President of the United States or the CEO of a company,
there’s no limits.”
