After her tremendous play on the pitch and outspoken activism off of it, United States women's national team star Megan Rapinoe is the hottest name on the sports speaking circuit. Her first post-World Cup engagement takes place at OZY Fest in New York City's Central Park
Rapinoe will participate in a live discussion on Sunday at noon at the Ally Stage. She is just one of the highlight speakers for the two-day event, which highlights live music, conversation, comedy and food on the Park's Grand Lawn.
Investor and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs will interview Rapinoe about sports, gender, politics and criminal justice. Other names from the sports world that are participating in Ozy Fest include this year's co-host Alex Rodriguez and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban,
All of her U.S. teammates have certainly been busy during the post-World Cup glow, but Rapinoe's star has burned the brightest. Her speech at the victory parade last week stole the show and she also accepted the award for Team of the Year at ESPN's ESPY's.
The Team USA co-captain certainly deserves the spotlight. Rapinoe scored six goals during the World Cup, making her the tournament's top scorer and the recipient of the Golden Boot.
Off the pitch, Rapinoe has been equally dynamic. She is known for advocating for several causes, including social equality for all people and equal pay for women.
