About me

Since I was born, I have always been a football fan. My whole family is a football fan. I’m glad they are, because this is my greatest passion. I love to watch it, play it, think about it, talk about it with friends. I love everything about it. I’m a midfielder and I absolutely love to be a midfielder. I can run around the whole field which is good because I have a lot of energy!

Why women's football?

The answer is very easy! I just really love to watch strong woman play my favorite sport. It inspires me a lot! I have been following women’s soccer since 2016, since i was 13 years old. It all started when I got introduced to the Ajax women’s team. I fell in love with the sport even more now I saw that women play it too. Then the euros in 2017 came, and from that tournament on I could call myself a big fan! I started following the Netherlands women’s team, where i closely watched Vivianne Miedema and Danielle van de Donk. Those two are my favorite players from that team. Their technique and skill really inspire me to be a better footballer every day. They are both absolute world class in my opinion. I’ve always watched more and more women’s football by the time. I started to be a big fan of the Barcelona’s women team, Arsenal WFC, Olympique Lyon women and I secretly also like the skill of the West Ham women (dont worry I'm still and I’ll always be a Gunner). Women's football bring me a lot of joy and happiness, and without it I wouldn't have met the best friends that I have now. I’m so grateful for everything and so proud of all the women.
