The Sseninde Foundation Women’s Football Workshop

The Sseninde Foundation Women’s Football Workshop

Somethings seem so small yet with a big impact. Others seem big , easy and irrelevant but make a lot of sense. I decided to be unapologetic and do what I love which is to see many young girls get equal opportunities to play football.

with this I’ve decided to run a Women’s Football Workshop and it’s my first time as well. A bit nervous but done this a number of times and my confidence has grown in the last 6-7years into something amazing that I hope my parents will be proud of as well

Here is a link to the programme and bios of all the speakers during the event that’s taking place on the January 10th 2019 at Mackinnon Suits.

Enjoy your Sunday

My Today

’Am going to follow their footsteps and become even a greater woman in the world and I believe that because it’s my dream.’

Today I was going to the airport and was late , but for once in a very long time I had a driver dropping me who cared about me . Usually I just drive and park by the airport or I get a taxi but today he even got to push two of my big suitcases to departure .

He was so calm , about the same height as me but slightly taller and very nice black hair. I don’t even remember when I last looked into someone’s eyes directly and didn’t wanna stop. To say the least, the best ride I’ve had with a person in “decades”. Closing this chapter, I never got to say goodbye to him when we reached the airport as was rushing in order not to miss my flight.

On board, I was sandwiched between two Chinese women . One of them extremely talented ohh God! She was using this photoshop app like I’ve never seen before. She made it all seem easy and reminded me of how I’ve struggled to learn using it 🙂 . I was staring at her secretly but non stop. Could today’s flight get any better? Away from her my eyes were loitering around uncontrollably to all other screens of passengers in-front of me. Then I realised how I haven’t focused for the last 7months . I have had things to deal with but with a very busy schedule and haven’t felt love that I deserve. I have Buried myself in my football and projects that I forgot myself.

I have missed home! Missed my parents and feels like I left home a decade ago . This holiday I have two events but am determined to rest my body and get mentally and emotionally fine. People talk about mental health but I thought I had got to that point where I was straining because I was missing the people I love. Now let me go home spend time with my pole dad and busy mother. Am going to follow their footsteps and become a greater woman in the world and I believe that because it’s my dream.

‘For the young girls and boys in my country, you are the reason I do what I do’

My life so far,

Wow I look back and this year is filled with mixed emotions.

Nothing has come easy and I have had to work incredibly hard, but the biggest challenge has been the sacrifices I have had to make. But with it all, I am thankful to the Lord for the love and guidance He has shown me ever since. Good things have always been too good to be true but now I say it’s the mindset. Everything that happens to us is in the mind. I thank the Good Lord for the opportunities that I have got so far and the time.

I recently got interviewed by Street football world in their Football4Good magazine where I featured on the cover to, you can read my interview on bit.ly/2rrg6ak

One of my American friends calls me a camera whore, well maybe sometimes it’s not to bad to share your story to help inspire so many other people’s lives.

I am an open book, and this is because I love to see so many of my friends, young kids and young generation all over the world succeed beyond what I will ever do.

For the young girls and boys in my country, you are the reason I do what I do, because you push me to do more so that when you look at my journey you will believe in your dreams.

One More Time.

‘Miracle workers don’t get to quit’

With football, everyday is a day to try one more time.

To be stronger, to be a leader, responsible, fearless and calm.

I have the passion, I must be strong, fast, fearless, have the team work , the desire to improve, and the hunger to win.

Always believe in your hard work because it works, it always pays off and every little step taken to improve yourself always counts.

For me football is more than just a game, it brings happiness and sometimes my most challenging moments. There days I feel so low probably when I haven’t had a good game, days I feel like retiring because I don’t feel good enough, and the inequality within the men and the women’s game also such a challenge. But we fight on to change that. All these at times create a battle within my heart because football means so much,but everyday we try one more time. I have met incredible people. And i always say we cant achieve anything alone, it takes a team.

Through my entire life, football has been the most popular sport. Be it the media, sponsors, fans, players, the young generation now all dream of being professional players.

But for me football is more than just a game, it’s changed my life. I want to give back to the communities and want to be in a position where I can be able to inspire so many girls and show them there’s opportunities for us all if we work hard and make sacrifices.

 

You must be a miracle worker if you are to get the life changing opportunities in your life and Miracle workers don’t get to quit. You must keep going when the going gets tough.

My dream is to give back to the game that has meant so much to me. I dream of working for FIFA or CAF one day and the United Nations. Yes, very big dreams but nothing is impossible, and we should all set our dreams so high up and work our selves off to achieve them. when things don’t work out today, try one more time everyday…

Until next time, have a wonderful week.

 

The Power Of a Vision

When you think about so many things you want to do in life , It’s amazing how many things we think of. I usually picture moments in my life happening in my head. It’s nice to witness some of these come to life. I always thank God.

Sometimes we can be happy by picturing only the happy moments in our lives and block out the bad moments. I have lived by this for quite sometime now.

Now am on my way traveling for a FIFA conference as one of the speaker and this is one of the big moments I dreamt of . Am great full to God for the opportunity. I pray to inspire and change someone’s life . My journey is to inspire many young girls not only in my country Uganda but also in the world .
