KYM HAMPTON has lived one dream through basketball and is now ready to pursue others in the world of entertainment.
For the former WNBA and New York Liberty All-Star, having completed a 15 year professional basketball career not only in the WNBA, but Spain, Italy, France and Japan, the transition should be a natural one. The world for Kym has always been a stage.
A graduate of Arizona State University, not only did she receive her bachelors degree in theatre, but will go down in the university’s history as one of the most highly decorated hoop players to grace the Sun Devils' court.
During Kym’s WNBA career and since then, she has become a plus size model in fashion as well as cosmetics. She is currently a Cover Girl Queen Collection model featured in a nation-wide commercial. She has appeared in GLAMOUR, ESSENCE and other magazines. Kym has worked with photographers like Francesco Scavullo and Daniel Green.
As a person who has always worked to reach goals and follow her dreams, Kym also encourages everyone to do the same, especially our youth. Two of her favorite sayings are: “Be the best YOU that you can be” and “As adults, we must lead with our actions, not our words”.
