Inspiring Woman Qiana Martin
A man's game in a man's world? No room on the field for a girl then and a woman now? Don't let Qiana Martin hear you say that! While she will hear you out in the most kind and gentile way, her story does not support a no-can-do attitude!
Despite having limited exposure to the sport of soccer growing up, Qiana decided to pursue her dream of becoming an international soccer player.  It is a journey that has transported Qiana from pick-up soccer games with African, Caribbean and Latin American guys in a Los Angeles park to playing with international clubs to creating excitement for this “global language” with both inner city communities and changemakers alike.

"I hope that one of the takeaways from my story will be that when you embark on a goal, you are not simply signing up to realize a particular achievement.  You are in fact starting on a journey of personal transformation, and that ultimately can be the greatest accomplishment of all." Qiana Martin
