You never know when and how you will cross someone’s path. I have known Magic Johnson since college. While we were not officially friends, I was a cheerleader for Ohio State University and he was a basketball player for our rival Michigan.
Because there were not many black college cheerleaders, I was well known amongst the ball players.
Years later, Magic and I ran into one another in Los Angeles. We shared a laugh about knowing one another in college. While he went on to become a famous basketball player, I excelled in my profession.
It was later that we met up again as he was a judge for the Miss Fitness America contest for which I won. We have remained good friends since that time and he has been supportive in whatever venture I was trying to do.
I can say,” he truly understands me”.
