Which player most inspired you and why? Fabien Barthez, as he impressed me with his skill in goal and his charisma.

Which coach most inspired you? My first coach in the boy's team, because he believed in me, even though I was a girl and desperately wanted to play as a goalkeeper.

What was the best advice they gave you? He taught me how to move between the posts and how to catch the ball properly.

Best player you've played with? Genoveva Anonma.

Toughest opponent? 1. FFC Turbine Potsdam.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? I have played a long time with the boys and I have learnt a lot from them, especially being courageous as a goalkeeper.

What was the experience of playing in a youth final tournament? Playing different countries and learning that different nations have a different way of playing. It was nice playing against such teams.
