After a nervous beginning, soccer has become the cornerstone of Emine’s life, but her team doesn’t just play soccer – they dance! 

“I felt nervous, and it was kind of scary because you don’t know anything. I haven’t played football and I wasn’t fit, that’s why it was scary because I didn’t know if I was able to play,” she explained.

Emine has gone from emigrating from Turkey with no friends, to being part of a soccer community that meets for breakfast before they play – both parents and kids!

“We dance to warm up, and we dance at the end,” she laughed, “we always lose but we dance, we’re always dancing.”
