A Journey of Passion and Perseverance in Women's Football.
As a child, I harbored a dream of becoming a professional football player.
Despite the lack of opportunities and the challenges of pursuing a career in a predominantly male sport, I remained determined to never give up on the sport I loved. Now, as a midfielder with over 40 international caps for the UAE National Team, I'm proud to have participated in numerous international competitions, including AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers, WAFF International Championships, and WAFF International Club Championships, as well as several international friendlies in Europe and Asia.
However, women in sports often face cultural barriers and stereotypes about gender roles. I'm committed to changing these perceptions and promoting the physical and mental benefits of women's participation in team sports. Every girl and woman in the United Arab Emirates deserves the opportunity to pursue her sporting passions without cultural sensitivities and with society's full support. This is the dream that fuels my passion for the game and motivates me to continue striving for excellence both on and off the field.
As a passionate advocate for women's football, I'm committed to breaking cultural barriers and changing the commercial perception of the sport in the region. I believe that investment and opportunities are crucial for the growth and success of women's football. I'm determined to play my part in driving positive change in this regard. It's important to recognize that the pressure to succeed should not solely fall on the players, but also on the wider community, including investors and sponsors. Together, we can create a brighter future for women's football in the United Arab Emirates and beyond.
