We’re live at the Athletes’ Voice event in Atlanta, Georgia with Kawser Amine, the founder and CEO of WSPL (Women’s Solidarity for Peace and Leadership). She was born and raised in Kabul, Afghanistan, and is a former member of the female Afghan national soccer team. She’s working to change the world through soccer.

Kawser dreamed and hoped for something that should have been impossible in a country like Afghanistan, and she made it happen. She started playing soccer at seven years old, and went on the national path at nine and a half years old. She wanted to change her life path from the girl who was always dreaming of something to making it a reality. Kawser went on to study political science at the University of Afghanistan and starting a women’s leadership club, spreading the message that girls can get more engaged support through soccer. Soccer was so important to her personal development, and she wants to world to change so that girls realize there is room for them in the sport of soccer.

Through her non-profit organization, Kawser helps girls believe in themselves — both that they can play soccer and seek an education. While all parts of the world still don’t support those beliefs, Kawser believes that with enough support it will be possible.
