"When I started, my football role models were male; now, fortunately, girls can have women as role models thanks to the evolution of women's football," she emphasized.

On the other hand, the current councilor and director of institutional relations of the women's football section, Ruth García, also shared her journey as a player and emphasized the importance of girls nowadays wanting to be like Alba Redondo, María Méndez, Leire Baños, or any of the players who make up our squad.
