Game of Her Own

May 5, 2022

Senior Coordinator of Special Projects for U.S. Soccer, Sabrina Alsaffar, has gone through a lot in her incredible journey and she does not hold back in sharing it with us. In this episode, you will certainly laugh a lot. You will be outraged at some of the things she’s gone through. You will feel sheer joy for how she boldly went after what she wanted. You will also feel compelled to connect with her and make sure she is a part of your network.   In this episode, we talk about 

  • How she broke the mold of what was expected of her by her immigrant parents 
  • What she did when someone in HR told her to “go back to your little country” 
  • How she brought up uncomfortable D&I truths in interviews 
  • Why she made the jump from Government to Sports 
  • Why you should think about if you are unhappy or on autopilot 

And you know there is so much more!
