Kathellen Souza is fulfilling a dream at Real Madrid after going through a difficult path. The Brazilian, born Baixada Santista, a town near Sao Paulo, has always loved playing soccer. However, she saw how in 2012 Santos closed her school and was left without a team. Futsal saved her until she turned 18 and she seriously considered quitting soccer.

His life today would be different if the doors of the university in the United States had not been opened. He went to New York without knowing English, but with the hope of one day being a footballer. “I didn’t know any English and I had doubts, but football opens borders. My father says that you may not know how to speak a language, but the language of football is known by everyone, ”he assured. From there he went to Girondins, where he settled in Europe and made the leap to the national team. After two years at Inter he landed in the summer at Real Madrid, convincing Toril in a few weeks. He is already untouchable. His 1.80 height and his privileged physique not without quality have made him a revelation.
