About the Speaker
When Justine Siegal’s daughter was born, Justine decided to stop looking for opportunities and start creating them. She started Baseball for All, an organization that helps girls play baseball. Through this organization, and as director of the Sports Partnership at Northeastern University, Justine helps others create their own opportunities, both athletic and academic.
According to Justine, a healthy love of sports should begin in school. “Sports can teach everything,” she says. “How to fail, how to succeed. They show you how small the world is. What begins with movement and fun can go on to teach youngsters how to live.”
