''I started playing soccer when I was just 5-years-old! I've always played as a defender until I started with Inter Aliyah. Now I am playing more as a forward and have realized scoring goals is way more fun.
''I moved to Israel around 2 years ago to be with my Israeli boyfriend. We initially met on an aeroplane years ago and have been living together in the US before we decided to come to his homeland!
''Since coming to Israel, I've always been keen to get my playing boots back on and I found Inter Aliyah through a Facebook group! I love that all the different nationalities are playing together, it’s really unique.
''I hope the women’s team can join the professional league soon! And of course, with Maurizio as the coach, who is simply the best!
