“Being a part of the Favela United project changed my life. I used to be very shy and didn’t have a lot of self confidence. Now I'm coaching the next generation young girls and boys in the community and I also became a referee in the official youth football competition. I feel strong, confident and respected when I walk through the community, it makes me happy and proud”. Joaquina
