You’ve probably seen her in Pure Game’s Friday Challenges, or on The Tiff & Tony Show. And in this week’s Pure Game Field Champion Spotlight, we’d like to you get to know more about Tiffany Neptune. Tiffany has been with Pure Game for quite some time now, becoming a positive role model that has allowed her to connect with underserved youth in our communities.
Learn more about Tiffany in this week’s spotlight:
Pure Game: How did you get involved with Pure Game?
Tiffany Neptune: Getting to mentor and connect with kids through sports/games lands in a core drive for me as I love to play and be a positive role model. When I came across Pure Game in my career search, I couldn’t believe there was an opportunity for me to do both for work. Here I am now, and I am so grateful!
PG: How has Pure Game helped you in your personal development?
TN: Not only is my work with the kids through Pure Game fulfilling for me, it has stretched me and forced me to grow in challenging myself to do what we invite the kids to do.
PG: What inspired you to join the Pure Game staff?
TN: Helping people is what I aim to do every day. Others have mentored me throughout really hard and beautiful things in my life and I want to be that for someone else.
PG: What kind of Impact have you seen in the schools the Pure Game services?
TN: My favorite memories are of small moments, like when a kid I’ve been connecting with opens up and shares what they are feeling and/or something tough that’s going on in their life. It’s those moments, whether one or more throughout their lives that will impact them in ways I will never know. I have very special small moments with mentors in my life and they are with me now and give me the strength and endurance to help others.
PG: Why should people support Pure Games Programs?
TN: Kids are being reminded that they matter, the choices they make impact them and the world around them, and they gain connection with a safe adult who can at the very least laugh with them. That’s healthy, good and needed for everyone. Why not support an organization that’s bringing that to a kid’s life?
