In the fourth episode of DNA of a MAKER, we delve into the personality of well-known sports journalist Erin Andrews. With host Lilliana Vazquez, Andrews opens up about how her competitive nature has fueled her love for her job, fitting into the male-dominated sports world and how she’s defied the public’s expectations.

Overcoming personal struggles with a little help from Oprah and her Supersoul Sessions, the journalist welcomes building resiliency: “You cannot categorize events that have happened to you. But what you can control is, that event doesn't define you, at all. You learn from it and get better from the whole thing.”
