''When I came to Israel back in 2012, I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to play football competitively again, having played regularly in my home city of Buenos Aires in Argentina. However, a few months ago a friend in passing mentioned Inter Aliyah...


''We found out that weekly football sessions for girls were open for all and we went the next week. Immediately, I was hooked and haven’t missed a single week of training since.


''Since I come from Argentina, it makes sense that I'm football mad and have been playing my entire life. Whether it was playing in the park with friends as a child, or playing competitively in high school, football has always been a major part of my life.

''Every week, I really look forward to the Wednesday trainings with Inter Aliyah. Even though the football is what originally brought me to the club, it's now also become seeing the other girls I've become friends with and listening to all the different languages spoken.


“When I hear the combination of Hebrew, English, Spanish, Portuguese and more every week, it reminds me of how lucky I am to have such a unique opportunity to meet people from all over the world. I really recommend the Inter Aliyah Banot sessions for any girls out there who love playing football and are equally keen to meet some awesome Olim!!
