1. How does it feel to have been selected for such an elite squad?

It is very exciting and I feel it is a great honor.

I started playing football when I was 6 years old for Dandy Town with the boys. At that time, I had no idea what I was doing, my daddy had just taken me down there to play.

I hope to bond more with the team.

I admire Coach Quita because she always encourages me.
