Tahnee Robinson was sitting in class on April 11, 2011, when her pocket started buzzing. She ignored it for a while, but her phone was blowing up. She finally picked it up to answer a call from her agent. The phone call left her in shock, she had just been drafted to the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA).
Living on the Wind River Reservation in Fort Washakie, Wyoming, Robinson was raised in a different world than the rest of her fellow draft class, but a love for basketball has been continuously instilled in her life.
