Despite being born into a family with an impressive sports background, Cameron Brink wasn’t interested in being an athlete when she was younger. It runs in her blood, however, with her mother, Michelle, clocking in at 6 feet 3 inches and her father, Greg, standing at 6 feet 8 inches. The pair met while playing basketball at Virginia Tech in the late ’80s, and they both had impressive careers as student-athletes.

The couple went on to marry and welcome Cameron in 2001 while living in Princeton, New Jersey. The family later relocated to Amsterdam to work for Nike, with Michelle working in product management and Greg in supply chain management. Michelle and Greg eventually moved Cameron and her older brother, Cy, to Oregon, where they attended high school.

Despite her parents’ impressive sports careers, Cameron admitted she wasn’t interested in being an athlete until middle school. “I always wanted to be the black sheep,” she explained on the “Strong Girls Pod.” “I was like, ‘I like art, I’m a girly girl,’ I never really wanted to associate myself with basketball until sixth grade.” Eventually, she grew to love the game after attending a Stanford summer basketball camp, where she began to see a future in the sport.
