Jenaia has been a NBA fan ever since she can remember. She loved basketball so much that she thought she was going to be the first woman in the NBA. She is from the Chicagoland area (Joliet, IL) and grew up during the Michael Jordan/Scottie Pippen era with the Chicago Bulls. She was more of a Pippen girl! Then Jenaia became fascinated with Shaquille O’Neil. She had his action figure, plaques of him in her room and Orlando Magic sheets. She felt he was just such a dominate player shattering backboards and tearing down rims. So when Shaq went to Los Angeles Lakers so did Jenaia. She is a Lakers fan through and through. She even lived in LA in 2010 and that is when she went to a Los Angeles Dodgers game and saw some women her age rocking LA Dodgers baseball hats; NEW ERA® 59FIFTY®. She thought to herself, “Bet, I can rock a baseball hat and look cute too.” She shortly moved back to the Chicagoland area for a new job and the first two NEW ERA® 59FIFTY® baseball hats she purchased from Lids were LA Dodgers and Chicago White Sox. She grew up going to Chicago White Sox games with her mom. If you are from the Chicagoland area you know you have to pick a side lol! Northside – Chicago Cubs; Southside – Chicago White Sox!!! You already know what it is…..White Sox, everyday, all day! This is the one Chicago team Jenaia is truly loyal to! Jenaia is such a huge sports fan she got married at U.S. Cellular Field at home plate. From there she knew she wanted to work in sports but was not sure how. Three weeks after getting married she moved to Texas and soon after moved to San Antonio. She ended up volunteering at the UTSA football games in the press box as a Media Communications Runner. That opportunity lead volunteering in a few UTSA men’s basketball games to the Alamo Bowl to Men’s NCAA Final Four that was hosted in San Antonio. Then came her position as the Media Credential Will-Call Coordinator for the San Antonio Commanders. She also participated in a contest called Rock The Mic ESPN San Antonio was first runner up out of one hundred men. She was the only woman. Leaving that competition she received a text message from a friend telling her that there was a spot open for a Media Communications Runner with the Houston Texans. She immediately interviewed for the job and landed it. She still currently works for the team, but took the season off due to Covid. Jenaia also worked for the San Antonio Spurs as a 50/50 Raffle Representative and last, but not least she interned at Sports2Nite; a San Antonio sports TV show. Now, Jenaia is ready to focus on Sports By The Numbers and all the other assignments God has her on in 2021.https://twitter.com/JenaiaNicolehttps://twitter.com/SBTN930
