Udoka Nwanna

Ms Nwanna, an attorney, now teaching law at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, began playing golf about 12 years ago, just once a year at friend’s charity tournament. She finally decided to take a lesson and she’s been at it ever since. She feels very strongly that there are not enough women in golf, especially women of color. This is part of her passion for helping the girls at Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego.

She was introduced to the organization by a law associate, began volunteering and learned that there’s a lot more going on at Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego than just golf.

“These are amazing young women of many nationalities and diverse ethnic backgrounds. I vol-unteer at their golf classes and on the Girls Mentor Committee. Through these and other activi-ties offered, I believe these girls are on the path to successful lives,” said Ms. Nwanna.

Ms. Nwanna recently joined the Pro Kids | The First Tee San Diego board of directors. She is also a member of the University Club and has a golf membership through the club that allows her to play at any Club Corp course in the United States. Because she works in Los Angeles, she often plays Aliso Viejo and Coto de Caza in Orange County.
