Play Ball!

Description

Thirteen-year-old Sreyoun shows off her form as a football (soccer) player in Cambodia.

“I became interested in football when I saw my friends play and they seemed to be having so much fun. Without any hesitation, I joined them and learned how fun this game could be,” says Sreyoun. 

Sreyoun likes kicking the ball and she likes to compete. She likes learning new skills and getting stronger.

Sreyroun lives with her mom and four younger siblings. Her dad has gone to Thailand to workWhen I come home from school, I help feed my siblings. My grandma lives with us. She is old and is not able to assist around the house. My mom is a stay-at-home mom.”

Sreyroun attends a World Vision youth club, which is another favorite outlet for this energetic girl.   

“When I go to the children's club, I come back home and teach things that I've learned to my younger siblings, like reading and writing. It has been a huge benefit to my family,” she says.

This energetic and committed young girl has high aspirations.

“I want to be the best athlete in Cambodia,” she says.
