Domestic honours: Bosnian Women's Player of the Year 2012

Which player most inspired you and why? There isn't just one player that inspired me most. When I'm watching football matches, I mostly watch how defenders play and I try to copy what they do well and learn from their mistakes.

Which coach most inspired you? Definitely our current coach Samira Hurem. She inspires the whole team with her professionalism, knowledge and experience and she communicates with us as a friend in all situations, whether our problems are football-related or otherwise. 

What was the best advice they gave you? Believe in yourself, work hard, respect your opponents and give your all in every match.

Toughest opponent? There are a lot of players, but as a defender, I can say that I had the hardest task against Lyon.

What are your memories of your first club as a child? I remember having a lot of fun playing football, regardless of wether we lost or won. Now it is different when you lose!

What tip would you give a young player hoping to succeed? Most importantly, believe in yourself and work hard. Talent is not enough and it takes time to become a consistently good player.
