About the Author
Scout Bassett started playing sports at a young age as a way to assimilate into American culture. She tried basketball, softball, golf, and tennis before competitively racing in track & field. She is now an American sprinter and long jumper, holding seven national championship titles. In 2016 she represented the United States at the Paralympic Games in Rio, and in 2017 she was a World Championship medalist. In addition to her career as a professional athlete, Scout is an ambassador for the Challenged Athletes Foundation, a Women's Sports Foundation board member, and serves on the Gatorade Women's Advisory Board. She was a guest star on Project Runway, and has appeared in numerous campaigns for brands like Nike, Citi, Procter & Gamble, Bridgestone Tires, SKIMS, and more.
"Scout lives at the intersection of being a female in sports, a minority, and having a limb difference. If anyone understands overcoming adversity, it's Scout. Lucky Girl is a guidebook for girls and women everywhere who have ever felt like an 'other.' This book is going to change the way you view yourself and the world around you."--Tunde Oyeneyin, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Motivational Speaker, and Peloton Instructor
"As a fellow athlete, I have always been inspired by stories of resilience and determination. Scout Bassett's Lucky Girl is one such story that left me awestruck and motivated. I wholeheartedly endorse this book, and I believe that it will positively impact anyone who reads it."--Allyson Felix, 5-time Olympian and Co-Founder, Saysh
