Soccer is a way of life, and this way of life has allowed me an opportunity - to be a part of something special, to have a voice and to make a positive impact.

I love soccer because it is an avenue for women in this country and all over the world. It is a platform capable of changing the definition of feminism. Strong, passionate, fierce, athletic, independent dreamers are beautiful. These are all words that embody women who play the game and who we celebrate with our "Beauty Is A Beast" campaign. I love being a part of The18 because – with campaigns like this – we can tell the stories that matter, be a positive rally cry and leave the game in a better place than when we first discovered it.
