A’JA WILSON STATUE
On the same University grounds WNBA player, A’ja Wilson’s grandmother couldn’t even walk on, a statue of her granddaughter was unveiled.
We’re not crying, YOU’RE crying (ok, yeah, we’re crying a little).
When she was a child, she couldn’t even walk on the grounds of the University of South Carolina. She would have to walk around the campus just to get to where she needed to go.
