First Footballing Memory:
I was at my first soccer trails feeling a bit nervous not knowing anyone and being the only girl. My age group versed the age group above in a game and when I got the ball I went around a few players then crossed it into the centre so the person could shoot. Once I passed the ball I heard a friend who’d shown up for his JPL training yell across the field “you just got beat by a girl!” and I instantly felt more relaxed.
Goal for 2018:
To out run every player I come up against.
