Her name is Desiré, she is originally from Guinea-Bissau but she was born in Senegal. At the age of six she moved to Conegliano, in the province of Treviso. She lives in Florence where she studies Economic Development, International Cooperation, Health and Conflict Management.

Sport has played a fundamental role in her life because, especially as a team, it helps to build and improve different sides of her character. After an injury, her dream of becoming a great player is over.
