LaTasha Holt Q&A

Who was your childhood idol? Why?
My great-grandmother, hands down…she overcame so many obstacles and adversities in life yet still manages to take care of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Her ability to be strong for us and for herself is admirable.
Who is your biggest supporter?
My lady, my boys – Ahmare, Elijah, and Asante – and my family!
If you could have a conversation with anyone, dead or alive, who would you choose? Why?
Malcolm X…I’ve always wanted to know the raw version of his story, not the watered-down version. I want to know everything he experienced.
Who is your female sports idol?
Anne Wolfe…she was a monster in the ring. The look in her eyes when she was in attack mode was so fierce. I always wanted to be a boxer, so I vicariously lived through her.
Who is your favorite NFL player? Why?
Demarcus Ware and Ray Lewis…they were predators and headhunters. How they zeroed in on their targets was exciting and powerful. I always wanted to hit like them!
What is your favorite movie?
Remember The Titans, because it’s about my high school.
What is your favorite TV show?
I don’t watch too much television, but when I do, it’s usually something about forensic science and murders on the ID channel.
What is your favorite food?
Mac and cheese!
What is your favorite book?
Alchemist, by Paulo Coelho, and Kindred, by Octavia Butler.
How did you hear about women’s football?
I have been following the Divas for years, and I finally decided I wanted to try out.
Why do you want to play women’s football?
To legally hit b—-es!
What does it mean to you to be a D.C. Diva?
Everything! So much pride and fight…all in!
