Youngest Sport Agent in History!

Youngest Sport Agent in History!

Makayla Everett, Student Writer

Major things are happening for women during the month of March (National Women’s Celebration Month)–Ketanji Brown Jackson’s nomination for the highest court in the land and, of course, THIS:

Shyra Johnson became the youngest sports agent in history! She took Drew Rosenhaus’ place who is one of the most famous sports agents in the nation. Shyra passed the 2022 National Basketball Players Association Agent Certification Exam at 21 and even started her own sports agency, Team Empire Sports, all while working in the First Generation office at Florida Atlantic University as a retention specialist. Shyra wanted to become a sports agent ever since her father mentioned it as they were watching ESPN’s First Take saying, “My dad presented me with this career path and ever since then, I’ve honestly just never looked back and always just said like ‘Yeah, I wanna be a sports agent.'”  She was granted a scholarship through the Strul Emerging Scholars program, and with that, she was blessed with an internship with ESPN–The rest was history! Congratulations, Shyra!
