Winning In Life Began By Winning On the Field

Soccer is more than a sport for my friend Edna. Soccer changed her life.

As a Haitian immigrant, Edna learned she could be a winner when she signed up to play soccer in high school. She scored goals on the field and finally scored a college scholarship that put her on a path to becoming a nurse.

Now, she uses her new life and new career to give back to “the other Ednas” in Haiti. She returns to her homeland to run volunteer medical clinics. She also sponsors a soccer team for 65 girls in her hometown.
