Watch One Girl’s Journey to Realize Her Poker Dream

For eight years, I worked as a poker reporter and played poker on the side. In 2014, I began playing professionally.

That’s why, this summer, I decided to go for a World Series of Poker bracelet.

They’re also afraid if they say it out loud, people will hold them accountable to actually do something about it. So sometimes people think it’s better to keep quiet about it.
