Meet Jasmine Joshua.
“I love soccer, it’s one of my favourite sports because it’s fun and I can play with my friends. My team is the Fisher Park Dragons. We’re doing pretty well so far. We won today and I’ve scored two goals already this season. I play basketball too, and I wanted to try out for track and field because I like to run, but I wasn’t old enough for my school team. The advice I would give to other kids in sports is that you should have fun and just try and get in there, although you do want to try and pass the ball to people and play well. If you don’t, you might want to think about ‘why don’t I get the ball’ and try and build some good skills. It does feel good to win sometimes! There is no difference between girls and boys in sports. Once you get to know your team it doesn’t matter who you play with, it’s just to have fun.” Collected by Kate Settle
Humans of Kitchissippi is a special street photography project designed to introduce readers to some of the people who live, work, and play in Kitchissippi. Each instalment of HOK contains three elements: a photo, a name, and a quote from the subject that reveals a little bit about who they are. View our growing collection of humans right here.
