“The empowering feeling I get on the field with the ten other players is unlike any other sport I’ve ever played. The sisterhood that is the WFA is constantly pushing those boundaries that women aren’t these fragile little things that society seems to portray us as. It’s quite a beautiful thing to be/feel part of. I’ve had young girls approach me about how inspired they are to push forward with their own sports, or even to attempt football. I never thought I’d have an impact like I have, and it’s absolutely humbling and exciting. I can’t wait to see where the sport goes in the upcoming years.”  READ MORE
