“My name is Louise and I am 17. I am in Form Three” Louise starts. “I want to play football when I finish school. I want to be a professional football player. I want to play overseas. I already play sport at a high level here and get to travel for tournaments. They have training here in the schools”.
“I have been part of Girl Power for two years. I learnt how to take care of myself, about the importance of studying and how to overcome challenges. I feel more confident to overcome challenges now. I would like to keep helping girls.
“I live with my parents, we our family has six children. I am the eldest – it means I am in charge!” she laughs. “Every weekend, I like to practice football and also do some homework”
