The 1999 Women’s World cup was an inspirational moment in my soccer career. I was 13 at the time and I vividly remember the final game against China. I watched the game with all of my club teammates, huddled in front of the TV. With our faces painted and decked out in red, white, and blue, we were rooting for the USA with all our heart. There were so many people at the Rose Bowl and the excitement in the air was almost palpable.
