Reason for nomination:
Hilal is an inspiration to us all, she deserves to be seen because of her journey. I met Hilal 2 years ago at the Fa leadership academy. She is often known for breaking barriers within the Muslim community. No matter what knock her down she is always back up again. She an amazing individual who is keen to learn, support and is not afraid to asks the questions that everyone is thinking!
Hilal is from Liverpool and she has taken part in the Leadership academy in Liverpool where she received a mentor and developed herself as a coach and a community impact leader. She has done refugee sessions and young females’ sessions in Liverpool and the surrounding areas and in her spare time she supports in her local community in Toxteth for 3+ hours a week by delivering kicks sessions and supports other coaches with there 1-1s and when she can she helps coach women’s teams, so she doesn’t fall out of love with the game and it helps her widen her community and shed light on her philosophy.
