My name is Camila, I’m 6 years old and I’m from Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
My grandpa back in Barcelona used to play roller hockey, and was a European Champion. I never heard about hockey until I saw a stick for the first time. It was then I knew I wanted to play hockey.
I was 4 at the time and prepared myself learning roller skating during 1 year till I was old enough to access the Dubai Sandstorms ice hockey assesment. Now after 1 year playing, I’m with the Dubai Sandstorms and the Dubai Gallaxy Warriors Hockey teams.

If you could sit down and have dinner with one female hockey player, who would it be and why?
Fatima Al Ali, the UAE female national team captain, she is an amazing player that did a lot for female hockey in my country.
