She’s only 18 but Western Sydney Wanderers Westfield W-League keeper Jada Mathyssen-Whyman is already proving to be an inspiration to young girls right around the country.
Having represented Australia at both U17 and U20 level and now tearing it up with the Wanderers, the young shot-stopper has the football world at her feet.
As part of our exclusive “One-on-One” series, we found out who her footballing inspiration was as well as her ambitions to one day play for the Westfield Matildas.
And Mathyssen-Whyman is also coming to terms with being a role model for young children.
“Seeing what indigenous athletes too, like a long time ago Cathy Freeman, now Jade North and Lydia Williams, Kyah Simon as well, players like that show me that my dream can come true and hopefully what I do can help other kids;” she said.
