Football Saved My Life

This story talks about how football saved my life. I am a Cambodian young woman. It’s about my journey to get past my father not allowing me to play football, having to possibly stop studying and the threat of getting married to an old man. But that did not happen to me. Because of football, I can continue school, don’t have to get married, and decide how I want to live my life. I can do anything now.
