“Getting your hair done and sometimes being the girly girl that sometimes athletes don’t get to be ... That was a lie, such a lie!” she bursts out laughing.
“I don’t know. I hate being beautiful. I just want to play soccer.”
What’s your favourite feature?
I guess it’s probably my lips. They’re big and everyone always comments on them.
Who is the most beautiful person in the world?
Definitely Beyoncé. She’s not only a beautiful human, but she’s an amazing human being and she does a lot of good things outside of her career. She’s unreal. I would be Beyoncé, if I could. Always be yourself, unless you can be Beyoncé!
What is ugly to you?
Fake things! I don’t know if I should say that but I really don’t like the whole fake lips, fake butt, fake everything … It’s just not for me.
What’s your daily beauty routine?
Nothing. Natural beauty, mate. I don’t really have a routine, to be honest. Wake up, clean my teeth, moisturise, brush my hair.
What grounds you?
It’s just the way I am. I’m not really someone who likes fussing over things.
My family are very supportive but they’re the first ones to tell me if I didn’t have a good game. I still live with my parents in Fremantle because there’s no point moving out when I spend so many months away from home when I’m playing.
What’s exciting about this year?
I recently changed clubs and moved to Chicago. It’s a new team and a new
challenge and I’m really excited to get over and explore. I’ve never lived in the city, so it’s a new step for me.
