Empower is home to people who want to empower women through sport. We are an open-age girls' football academy. We believe in potential and hard work.
Football teaches us to be humble, kind and disciplined. We aspire to teach life skills on the field through communication, teamwork, respect, and inclusion. We dream to instill a lifelong love of football in our athletes by raising their physical literacy and making them aware of their physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Hi! My name is Farida El Sheshingy. I'm a football player and a coach. I graduated from Vancouver Island University with a BA in Sport, Health, and Physical Education.

More About Me & My Philosophy > > >
My coaching philosophy is in the form of a promise:
"I promise to show my players what they can be before what they are. I promise to put my players before myself. I promise to treat my players as people before they are players."
