i was what. i was a book and nothing just i'm just like i want to come with you then the has a fox lived in a can a little file and sleep would. have been a part of the live had i would let. the young women had to pass an initial training stage in order to be accepted at home and say. thank you. again but not. under seal but had come to look i'm. good for doesn't agree more with get on with the gaggle of. when you get. there with a wife you got a good fantasy. with. a smile and a think and wife but i don't work the how many. local t.v.
. and for happy i am can watch a video grab me on the by shouting at you make sure you. get the more typical laughter that was on most of us in march we were like. we are that's going to make the hard forwards of our. sharon is says progress out at sea was unfortunately affected by an untimely illness but the company offered her a job on dry land in the education center now she teaches young children about the sea and tries to inspire other young armani's to get involved in sailing. i think it would be.

a little one well if you little good to let me know you who are you are yet again not in the mud of it but. it can it does your will as i know ruger. i think the reaction has been great because i think the most important thing that we've shown people with very very. women's program and that's not just the race team but all all the program is you can be. a very. good woman in a traditional sense you know you can you can be. a wife you can be your daughter you can be a mother but you can also have this adventure you can also learn to sail and teach other people than inspire people and i think because we've shown that you can do both. you can still you can still be. good i'm only a woman and also
a very talented so going off around the world showing are showing everybody how how strong our people are. the young women and their families had to think carefully about the effect they're certainly would have on family life and whether it might affect their marriage prospects or responsibilities in the future. the click of a soul and the mystical and then. work with what i want to have the. heaven i'm an artist was that it gave us this a part of what he was. and could a little heaven in my having. got. on. and off. and when any within. a saw
and saw what has happened and it got there it should have been how the. role models are important in sport especially for young people. the most successful sportswomen in a man has been the tennis player fatuma and the panty and then he gets an eye to fuck man upon your endeavor. it's been a little within a human a human can within her my human a normal reality. ac with me that's with. shakey been that when i. forgot the. you know so i thought i saw on there how you give are. so much good in how most and then if some fun. assure us enough of my nap on him. diamond. diamond.
got. where. he can have it. at the one of them. and their pennies are man's number one tennis player she started playing at the age of forty and at her best in two thousand and ten was ranked three hundred sixty two in the world. she still plays in international tennis federation tournament and is a successful doubles player winning in las palmas in spain in august twenty seventh . for as she is a role model. well i. have a stake in the fair and the sick and in the head funny. men
and feed. them and. public support from high profile figures like men and the panel did not guarantee except insofar as by every sector of our money society. even the men's team sometimes attracts opposition. hannaman and defy the odds with a jealous minister model and that i am on the money will have the union if a footman is in the mess and i just. had the full length. in. full love. been done. to her but for. my fishy. oh.
is that often also the kind of stuff about aids and death of the myth and about. apollo accept them and feed the what going under. in a lot of unasur how watching. me in the comfort of them wednesday though with and with. not them at the what's my home for them michael free to what could be a common what's. going on and how. you know mine are going on and. the goals come along and they work just as hard as the boys and if they lose to the boys then they say right tomorrow you know tomorrow we win so it's it's it's it's interesting all i see is someone who's
driven someone who's committed and somebody wants to work so i find it very difficult to tell them apart to be honest. coming up in part to these are many women became about something more than just going out to sea in boats. when one has been with them now when. i want. maybe not the sort i had wanted been of and yet i'm a foreman in the not that i do in a month and not in number four. and no thing for us and what i've been kind of talked to. him at the medinah just. flew a nice. and the impact. when they took part in international competitions at the end of the regatta there with my old going up to go. ok respect you know well done you know

people around the world and you earn their respect there is there is nothing better than it is something really special to have people say. well you know you were impressive you really you know i respect your talent and that's what this team is about it's about hopefully some children looking at the team and think it will maybe maybe that is for me maybe i should work hard enough that i can go to a world championship with your mom flag or you know on my back and show everybody how strong we can be. as today i gradually began to see themselves as role models and that they had a responsibility to send example to other young are many women who might follow in their footsteps in the future. and that is a console human am i one more money at the phone and in reality i have had good i
thought that they landed in. my theory but the big thing for all of us and that's the same for the girls is hopefully we don't want to be the only thing we want to show everybody that it's possible it's possible to be to be a good arab woman and to be a fantastic athlete as well but they are both very possible so the more teams the more happy we are and shyla atlantic will feel they can be come in. for a common work to lift the well out of via. in an a d in jazz mama kind of changes pretty cool out of. i don't.
