Conroe Stars competitor, Iesha Williams, became a SOTX athlete only two years ago, but already the bocce, bowling, basketball and athletics athlete has seen some big improvements in her life as a result of her involvement. The Irons Junior High School eighth-grader puts her new physical and social skills to good use, even when she's not competing. In fact, Williams' love of SOTX has motivated her big sister to get involved as a volunteer. Her family is proud of the progress that she's made as an athlete and loves to support her as fans in the stands. In her spare time, Williams likes to play video games and work with computers. She also volunteers at church whenever possible.
