“My sister and I have been playing football for four years. We used to play on the streets, and one day Captain Rasho who is now my coach came to me and asked me to play in a stadium. I stepped into a new chapter in my life when Captain Rasho decided to include us in his team. At first, I found it very hard because I had never played in a stadium before.
Last year, I was playing for Amuda women’s team, even though I was a new player the coach called me up because of my height. I became the first player to play in women’s Syrian league at the age of fourteen. We won our last game in Damascus, and became the champions.
We also became the champions of women’s Syrian league for under 18 several days ago. My sister was the captain and she lifted the trophy. I was voted as the best player of the tournament and had scored the most goals.”
