Since kindergarten, PureWow 100 alum Antoinette “Toni” Harris has had aspirations of going to the Super Bowl. Now, she’s making strides toward making that dream a reality.
The 21-year-old Detroit native stars in Toyota’s new Super Bowl commercial about eschewing assumptions. And why? Well, Harris is the first woman to receive a scholarship to play a non-kicker position on any collegiate football team as a defensive back for East Los Angeles College. She’s tenacious and she’s received several offers to play from universities around the country, but her sights are set on something bigger: becoming the first woman to play in the NFL. Oh, and did we mention she was also homecoming queen?
