Swin Cash is one of the best female basketball players in the world. As a 3 Time WNBA Champion, 2 Time Gold Medalist, and 2 Time NCAA National Champion, Swin’s resume speaks for itself, but now her incredible new book, “Humble Journey” speaks for the work and drive that got her to the top of her sport. Selected as the Number Two overall pick in the 2002 draft, it didn’t take long for Cash to rack up awards and accolades. She is a five time WNBA All-Star, two time WNBA All-Star MVP, and a three time WNBA Champion. Cash also is a two time Olympic Gold Medalist and was voted ‘Dapper Dan Sportswoman of the Year’ in 2007.
Cash was a four year member of the UCONN Woman’s Basketball Team, twice winning the NCAA National Title and leading the Huskies to a 136-9 record during her tenure in Storrs, CT. She graduated in 2002 with a degree in communications science.
There’s more to Swin Cash than just points and rebounds. She is the Founder of Swin Cash Enterprises, LLC and the Founder of Cash Building Blocks, LP, an urban development company that renovates and offers affordable homes for low income families. As if that weren’t enough, the McKeesport, Pennsylvania native, is the founder of Cash for Kids, a 501 (c)(3) charity with the mission to “motivate, educate, & elevate” kids. Through Cash for Kids she has helped over a thousand children across the nation with a particular focus on fitness. Recognized by the WNBA’s Community Assist Award for her extensive outreach efforts, Cash enjoys talking to young people, encouraging them to believe in themselves, to achieve their goals and to become leaders in their communities. This, she believes, leads to self-confidence, self-development and is essential to helping kids “get in the game” of life.
