Success stories that are nice!

There are many success stories that are capable of making anybody who is unhappy living in their own system and country feel quite happy to do so at the end!
This is one of them.....From Albanian Asylum seeker to Female Soccer Champion of Europe (and possibly of the World for a second time, in a couple of weeksIn 1993 ) from the age of around 5 up to today's "old lady" of 23....!
Along the way, between learning the German language and English, she took time to develop and become an attractive young woman....  ..and a damned good player of the "Great Game"....
I was privileged to see a documentary programme on German television, about her long and winding road to where she is today, and I was frankly impressed by this "still young" lady's achievements, even before she reached her sporting peak, or at least the start of it.
 ..In 1993, her parents, Albanians from Kosovo decided to try to get out of their situation. Fatmire and her brothers were a minority which was being slaughtered, schools were being burnt down - homes as well, fathers disappeared never to be seen again, education consisted of being taught, in secret, behind closed doors with no equipment if at all, and always with the fear of the building being "torched" or the military bursting in and killing all present.Just last week, the Hague Court started a trial against the  leading "hero" of the epoch accused of "Genocide" - he will probably die before being found guilty, so long do these trials take..!
..Coming from such a background, It was no wonder that the parents decided to try to escape, and after an amazing voyage through strictly unwelcoming Europe, the family ended up as unwanted refugees in Germany.
They had narrowly escaped death on several occasions, and what now started was learning a new language, in a new country, with different cultures, both for the young daughter and her brothers, the parents also, of course.
Fatmire did so...and also found a passion for the predominantly male sport of football or soccer! In her world, dominated by religious and masculine traditions and force, she kept her passion hidden from her father ....Of course, he found out, and finally took her to a Woman's Football Club and let her look around, kick a ball, and discover her talent....I imagine that he was surprised to see that she had! That she had, still has, and at such a young age is going to continue to have you can see from this - her "Palmares" already in her life....Well done young lady - you see, everything is possible:
