Soccer star Abby Wambach and Humans of New York creator Brandon Stanton to speak at USF

Two notable speakers are on the agenda for the University of South Florida's student-run University Lecture Series: World Cup champion Abby Wambach and photographer and creator of the Humans of New York blog Brandon Stanton.

Wambach, the two-time Olympic gold medalist who led the USA to win the World Cup in 2015, is the all-time leading scorer in international soccer history, and an advocate for women's sports.

Stanton began his HONY project as a goal to photograph 10,000 New Yorkers and plot the photos on a map. But when he began including personal anecdotes of the subjects of his portraits, the project morphed into a blog that has captivated millions of followers.

Wambach speaks on March 10, and Stanton on April 5. Both lectures take place in the Marshall Student Center, 4103 USF Cedar Circle, Tampa, at 7:30 p.m. and are free, with seating on a first-come, first-serve basis, with priority given to USF students. uls.usf.edu.
