Currently, she’s on the Lady Bears’ staff as the Assistant AD for Player Development, and she’s over the moon to be back at her alma mater.

“I absolutely love it, I feel that I am in my purpose,” Sophia Young-Malcolm said.

“I feel that our young college athletes have so much that they should embrace in college, but don’t take advantage of that. And for me to be here in this position, it’s preparing them for life.”
