Which player most inspired you and why? Steven Gerrard of Liverpool FC. He is a true fighter and never gives up until the match is over. That's how I see myself. His energy amazes me.

Which coach most inspired you? My U17 and U19 national team coach.

What was the best advice they gave you? He taught me never to give up and to keep fighting.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? When I started playing in my first club there was no actual team for girls of my age, so I played together with girls who were six years older than me. However, more and more girls soon began showing up at the club, and suddenly we had a great team with girls roughly the same age as me.

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Keep fighting even when adversity follows you, and keep making goals for yourself in order to develop your skills.
