I’m Eva,I’m 11 years old and I play soccer.I definitely like to be the big sister.I have a pretty big family.There’s Simone, Amias, Redmond, Mum,
Dad and my stepmum, Carrie.In the morning when I have soccer,I make sure that my bag is packed,and that I have everything.Today, you go home with Mum, okay?And then I’ll get you after practice.Bye, Amias!Bye, Sissy!I’ve been playing soccer for five years.We usually play 4–4.There’s a sweeper, three mid … or 1–4–3–2 …Wait, I’m trying to do the maths.Play hard today, okay?And just have fun!When I put on my soccer jersey,I feel,to be honest …normal.Hustle!When my dad and my mum are there,
I feel like I’m supported by people,I’m not there alone.If Simone or Amias start playing soccer,
I hope to be a role model for them.No farther than this from her, okay?And the reason why is ’cause
I can see the entire play and her.My coach tells me to be aggressive.And I also think it’s good for girls
to be sassy on the field.No goal! That hit the pole!I like playing soccerbecause it gives me a lot of energy,and I get to run around with my teammates.Good play, lady!There’s literally no proof
that boys are better than girls.It’s just a belief.But my family doesn’t believe that.They believe in me.

  1. No one says boys are better than girls or girls are better than boys. But they are different from each other.
