Meet Linnae Harper
Linnae Harper is a former WNBA point guard having played for the Minnesota Linx and Chicago Sky. Currently, Harper is a USA National team player with a passion for sports, entrepreneurship, and serving her community.
Harper played for Ohio State and Kentucky during her college career, and she graduated from Whitney Young High School in Chicago, Illinois. She has played on seven different USA Basketball teams in the Americas and world competitions.
"I feel honored to have my own digital player card and also to be a part of the DPC organization to help build the athlete community across the world," Harper says.
In 2019, Harper launched her foundation, That Harper Kid, which aims to help underprivileged children in her hometown of Chicago achieve their dreams. Harper's goal is to ensure that a lack of support, resources, or opportunities will never stand between children and their bright, prosperous futures.
"Unity is important for growth, change, and the future of our younger athletes. Our kids under That Harper Kid NFP will be educated on the importance of DPC and digital marketing," says Harper.
