Do you have a female role model you identify with and why?
My female role model is Lucy Bronze because her performance in the past year has just been incredible. She was also nominated for FiFa women’s player of the year 2019 as well as UEFA’s women’s player of the year 2019 even though she didn’t win either of those She won Fifapro women’s world XI.
By looking at her and what she’s achieved and just the way she works hard on and off the pitch she motivates me to keep working hard in all aspects of my life.
