In Her Own Words

Her Story

Joanna is a big rock music fan. Among her favorites: David Bowie, Kylie, Ben Harper and Wilco ("You have to put Wilco," she says.) Playing soccer is a great escape from her worries, she says. "It puts you in another place."

June 26: "I want to get to know the people and make a difference, to leave behind the knowledge of how empowering soccer can be."
