Game Changer both on and off the pitch.
Growing up in London, Zainab didn’t pick up a ball until she was a teenager, but the game has gone on to shape who she is as a person
We head down to Richmond Women’s RFC to speak with Zainab Alema about her path
Zainab's goal is clear, to one day go on and become the first black female Muslim to play professional rugby for England, and on her
journey hopes to inspire greater accessibility and representation across the sport for everyone.
Zainab Alema talks to us about her rugby journey in the second of our mini-films celebrating the women who are changing the game.
