Since the age of 6, Shim’s trajectory had been pointing her toward the highest levels of women’s soccer. For years, she played persistently and made enormous sacrifices for the sport. Her dedication never wavered. She couldn’t get enough of soccer.
But Houston’s draft call made Shim question whether she wanted to play soccer so badly that she would be willing to pack up and leave the place and the woman she loved.
“Soccer is something I hold very close to my heart,” Shim says. “I was willing to sacrifice everything, including myself, for the sport. I had to take a step back and look at my life.”
Awesome in-depth feature on Mana Shim and everything that went into her getting to the Thorns that maybe definitely includes a video of a 9-year-old Mana juggling (The Oregonian).
We’ve been waiting for this. Off season is far too long.
