Esther loves being a RUSA coach and was proud to see one of her girls’ teams win a camp tournament last year. She shares her love of football with her husband who is very supportive of her work.

Esther dreams of one day attending university and completing a doctorate in medicine, though she also wants to continue coaching soccer. After what she experienced in Burundi, she does not wish to return, but would rather relocate somewhere more peaceful.
