Natasha Rodriguez thought she'd disappoint her father if she wasn't an athlete.
She found herself after realizing Alex Rodriguez wanted nothing more than for her to be happy with whatever she put her mind to. Fast forward to 2023 where Natasha now attends her dream school at the University of Michigan majoring in musical theatre. She is determined to beat the assumptions and preconceived notions that her father's name helped her get to where she is and prove that she belongs and worked for everything coming her way.
“At the end of the day, I consider myself an athlete. My dad has always told me, ‘You’re a champion. It’s in your blood.’ And I truly believe that.”— Natasha Rodriguez
