My name is Ivana Rojas, I am a sports reporter and actress, born and raised in Los Angeles, California. As a young athlete, I realized the importance of sports and its positive influence on and off the court…I also discovered a man by the name of Kobe Bryant around the same time! My fascination with Kobe’s work ethic, skills and mentality inspired me as an athlete, but more importantly as a person. Watching the Lakers growing up was like waking up on Christmas morning every day; there really wasn’t a better feeling!
As the sideline reporter and ambassador of the Venice Basketball League, I have had the opportunity to be part of a movement we created called “Build Court Not Walls.” VBL’s proceeds all go to rebuilding basketball courts around the world for kids and communities in need. I am excited and proud to be your Lakers Fangirl this year and for years to come! I bleed Purple and Gold..Lets gooo Lakeshow!
