“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”
“This has been an incredibly eye-opening experience. The refugee youth are resilient. Happy. And have a true love of the game. Originally I thought I would be the one imparting life lessons on them, but I have been pleasantly surprised of the lessons they have taught me.”
-Alex Gill (head coach)
Rackhie was born in Abashe, Chad. Originally from Sudan, her family fled due to the Sudanese civil war. Her mother was a nurse back home and her father owned a store. Her family lived in the refugee camp for 7.5 years before resettling in the USA. “I remember waiting for the school bus during my first winter in flip flops. It was so cold that I cried and returned home.” She hopes to be a veterinarian one day.
