About This Episode

In episode #2 of The GenY Success Show, I feature an ex-Division 1 athlete from UCLA. DeAndre Robinson played on the UCLA basketball team from 2004-2008. In high school, DeAndre was one of the top rated players on the West Coast. In this episode, he talks a lot about how his basketball career has affected his career success. He also gives really great insight on what it takes to succeed after life as a college athlete. Many ex-Division 1 athletes don’t build the proper skills and connections to succeed after they graduate. Since they aren’t good enough to make it to the professional level, many of them end up working low-level jobs. DeAndre talks about how to overcome that challenge.
