Ifeoma Onumonu, a professional soccer player for FC Gotham and a member of the Nigerian National Team, as well as a member of the Black Women’s Players Collective and a VIS League Mentor shares her journey in sport and advocacy. She takes us through her experience with injury in college and her struggles with confidence while moving through different teams in the NWSL. As a BWPC board member, Ify uses her voice and her platform to increase exposure to soccer in Black communities. She explains, “I think it can be very bleak when you're in a space where no one else looks like you. But, fortunately, now with the BWPC, we are providing role models that you can look to and be like, this is somewhere I belong.”
