She's not just a former Bruin, but at age 28, she's the youngest female agent. And she got the job done for Trevor.

“I’ll take the brunt of the criticism and then maybe future generations of girls won’t have to worry about posting a picture in their sports bras on Instagram,” Luba tells the Daily News in a recent phone interview. “It’s not always easy. But maybe if I can handle it, then other girls won’t feel that pressure when they try to work in sports.”

I have some mixed feelings about her posts, but overall I say kudos to her. She is right, breaking into that industry as a female is difficult, but the door is now open for a lot of young women who may want to become agents.
