GirlMogul of the Day: A Conversation with Latanna Stone
Hey GirlMoguls! It’s GirlMogul Lily here, and I had a really cool opportunity the other day. I got to speak to honorary GirlMogul of the Day Latanna Stone, and it was totally amazing! She was so down to Earth and lively, and I was really glad to hear that she was a just a regular girl doing awesome things, like I hope to be. She was also really friendly, and answered some questions for me. Below is a part of our interview, so make sure you stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon! GM is me, GirlMogul Daisy, and LS is Latanna Stone. She’s an amazing golfer at the young age of 8, and has won over 60 golf tournaments! Make sure to read more about her in the background post I wrote about her. So, here starts our interview:
GM: Hey Latanna. So when and how did you start playing golf?
LS: I started when I was 2 yrs old, and it was at my house. My dad gave me a broomstick, because he saw me swinging outside. My dad saw me swinging the broomstick, and said that that was a pretty good golf swing. So, I started playing golf!
GM: Did you enroll in classes and start training for golf?
LS: Well, I didn’t feel comfortable playing with boys. I was more comfortable with girls. So, I got a female teacher. Since then, I’ve had 3 girl teachers, and think I’m sticking with the one I have now. She’s really nice.
GM: What is it about golf that you love so much? What is your favorite part of the game?
LS: My favorite thing about golf is putting. Everything matters about putting. You can’t miss in short. Everything is important. I like golf more than other sports. I just want to stick with golf. I just want to win, have fun, and play.
GM: What has been one of the best opportunities you’ve gotten through doing what you love? What are some of your best memories?
Ls: Well, at the Eagles’ I made a hole in one. Yesterday, I made a birdie on the hardest hole in Miami. My dad started doing a dance in front of everybody because he promised he would! It was so great!
That was just half of my interview with Latanna! Stay tuned for Part 2 to learn some really quirky and fun facts about this 8 year old golf phenomenon!
