Today we are thrilled to be joined by Mariama Bukari as our guest, she is a graduate of the African University College of Communication in Ghana and is currently pursuing Sports & Entertainment Management at Hamad Bin Khalifa University. Growing up in Ghana, the insatiable love of football did not go unnoticed by people who met her. The support from her father and the inspiration that came from her other siblings pushed her to become phenomenal in playing, studying, and the management of this sport. She happily recounts how at times together with her family they juggled between harvesting crops and playing football. Her realization that most talents in Ghana could be found on the streets pushed her to start managing players in her community through sponsoring local matches or finding agents for talented players. In 2019 she registered her own youth football club, Black Strikas whom she supports from her own income. Catch up with her tremendous football journey and her future plans on this episode.
