Episode 2177: Ayeisha McFerran – The World’s Best Goalkeeper – On Qualifying For The World Cup, Hockey As Transformative Force, And Her Experience In Foster Care, Conte To Spurs, And Proposal B’s Lonely Death
We speak to the best goalkeeper in the world, Ayeisha McFerran, about Ireland qualifying for the next hockey World Cup, losing her mum at a young age, how her years in foster care have shaped her, helping kids who are now in foster care and why she feels compelled to be defined by more than just being an elite sports person.
This is amazing!?? The foster system is NI has been a massive stepping stone to my success & without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today, from supporting me with my education to enabling me to compete in my hockey around the world & for that Im very thanksful?? #thesystemworks https://t.co/CWHt1Pydwf
