Julia Edey Height
Julia Edey is also tall, as her height is around 6 feet. She was already 5 foot 9 inches when she was around 14, reports Wish TV.
When she was in ninth grade, her high school coaches noticed her because of her height.
Julia was just 17 when she tried out in front of Canada's Junior National team coaches and competed against players who were up to 21 years old.
Edey was in a huge dilemma as she could not afford flights for the games. She worried about how her parents would feel about her not helping in the family business. Her family thought that her passion for basketball was just a recreational thing and never came to her games.
Julia finally let basketball get out of her head after facing the harsh reality of the pre-WNBA world of women's professional basketball. She studied mechanical engineering and led a successful career. She then got married and had two sons with her loving husband.
