#WomenWhoCoach campaign: Naadrah Hafeez
In a sport once viewed as the sole domain of men, the future face of coaching in boxing is a young Muslim woman fittingly nicknamed 'The Smiler'
Watch our video with the Huddersfield Gladiators Boxing Club coach and you will see why 🙂
“I think it’s important to have a more diverse coaching workforce, because if we look at the world that we live in, the communities we are involved in on a daily basis, they’re not just made up of one type of person. We have different races, different religions, different people from different backgrounds. It’s the best way to learn – from one another – but also to connect and help us grow and develop.
“So I’d say [to girls and women thinking about getting involved in coaching], give it a shot, because you will love it! It's one of the most rewarding things that you'll ever do.”
