Roya Noori is 20 years old, living as a refugee in Stockholm Sweden, since 2011.
I started football back in 2004 and made football as career and goal for success and empowerment in my life.
I struggled a lot in my life in order to continue living and also football career. I was a child that had to work in order to help my family.
I lost my father due to sickness that my family couldn’t afford to pay the doctors. I was going to school after school and was coaching sports in House for Orphanage. And I was walking miles to go for training football.
I have played football for the national team of Afghanistan for 2 years. I faced problems and death threats from my relatives until I had no chance of living in my country.
I left my country and my family to flee to Sweden, Stockholm. Life was not easy without family and living away from your country in an early age.
Nothing is better than playing football, I continued playing football in one of the top youth club in Sweden (IK club), and in the meantime I is studying and working in Sweden.
Now I have once again chance to play football for my country and bring pride to my country. It is my dream come true, I was waiting for a long time to get the chance once again to play for my country and today I got it, nothing can stop me to reach my dreams, even death threats.
