BJ (Bedford) Miller
"Sports really gave me who I am. My three brothers were swimmers and I just wanted to be like them. I didn’t understand that things might not be completely equal between the genders because they were always equal with us. And if they weren’t, I fought like hell to make sure they were. I guess some habits die hard!"
