Reason

Growing up she would avoid basketball coaches who followed her, trying to get her to play. She eventually gave in and started playing at Ferroviario de Maputo and soon found enjoyment. "When I got there, I saw that there were more girls of my age and I was more enthusiastic. From there I never stopped playing." (desporto.sapo.pt, 8 May 2015)


Additional information

FINANCIAL STUGGLES
After playing professionally overseas, she is disappointed with the financial support offered back in Mozambique. "I am very sad because our country does not value the modality. I have won many good prizes in the foreign (leagues). We have good teams, some have already (played around) the world, but we have no sponsors or pavillions with conditions. I feel like we're going back to zero. Nowadays, we're here for the sweat." (desporto.sapo.pt, 8 May 2015)
