Volkswagen All-Star Spotlight: Sylvia W

Participant:  Sylvia White – Age 10 – Northwest Kiwanis Youth Soccer


Reason for selection: Sylvia was thrilled to be picked as the All-Star Spotlight! Her positive attitude on the field pairs well with her speed and natural left foot. Her first Women’s National Team game was a 1-0 win over Germany in the freezing rain (SheBelieves Cup 2018), and she is looking forward to the cold on Thursday night!
