What is your greatest moment(s) in EIDFT Career:

Receiving an outstanding news where I was selected into 23 men squad for England International Deaf Football Team. A moment to wear the shirt that I can represent to my own country!

Being part of the team beating Czech Republic Deaf team, we are on the road to European Championship 2019 in Crete!

Favourite Hobby: Playing Football with friends and the team, swimming

Favourite Team: Chelsea definitely!

Why chose EIDFT?: I have played football since I was given birth but it has not stopped me loving this sport! I always hold a football with me everywhere I went even when I went to sleep! Somehow I took a turn of sports and decided going for the competitive swimming where I represent for Great Britain Deaf in 3 Major International Competitions, this brought my focus away from playing football. After competed in Deaflympics 2017, I was satisfied what I have achieved in swimming so it was my time to go back into football and achieve something in England shirt.
