Nadia Nadim was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. Her father was executed by the Taliban. [Nadim’s family] left. Fast. They went to Denmark. Then they find soccer and say, ‘I can play without getting hurt?’ She becomes the best player in Denmark, joins the national team, comes to Sky Blue and in her second day here, rings the bell at NASDAQ. That’s not supposed to happen. And it happened. x
