My name is Farida Salem, I’m an Egyptian soccer player. I played for the Egyptian national team when I was 19. I moved to Canada when I was 21 to further my soccer career. I played for (and graduated from) Vancouver Island University: Bachelor of Sport, Health, and Physical Education. Now I am back in Cairo to inspire other female soccer players to pursue their dreams.

My Mom is my biggest inspiration because she has always been my number one fan. She used to drive me to every single practice and match ever since I was a kid. She fights the secret battles we don’t see – she is a true woman warrior.
