TALES FROM A HIJABI FOOTBALLER

I smash assumptions.

196 notes

Got this beautiful picture from Lela Ahmadzai’s website. 
This particular image makes me incredibly happy. My mother always taught me I could “be anyone and play anything”. 
I hope young women all over the world hear that message at some point in their lives.
It doesn’t have to be football. It can be something they love and something they crave. Women’s Advocacy, Sport, Environmentalism, Hobbies but something. So that they know, and the world understands, that everyone has a contribution to make.
Women need that chance. And that encouragement. 
Lela has captured the resilience and passion of the women in Afghanistan and their love for the beautiful game.
Do check out her amazing work: http://www.ahmadzai.eu/en/allgemein-en/a-wmans-goal
I watch this short film a lot. It reminds me of my privilege. I am very aware of my ability to play safely and teach my daughter the same. 
I have posted it and will continue to post it again. And again. And Again.
