LARA-MELTEM FILIZ MARIE
“I grew up in Berlin, not having any role models I could really relate to. As long as I can remember, I only wanted to play football. Being successful and competing with others had no meaning for me. It was just the pure joy spending time with a ball.
A few years later, I found myself in the training camp of U17-womens national team of Azerbaijan where I spend two years and learned a lot more than only how to become a better player or defend 3vs1.
By time an idea grew up in my mind. It was, that me and my friends should become the role models for all these young girls with their ball, which do not know yet what they can achieve.
I became coach and love to see the girls winning self-confidence and dreaming of bigger steps.”
