The chance to contribute towards a young person changing their life for the better is the single greatest satisfaction in being a football player says incoming Common Goal member Leicy Santos.
Santos, Atlético Madrid Femenino and Colombia midfielder, has pledged a minimum of 1% of her earnings to driving social change through the beautiful game.
By making the salary pledge and joining the Common Goal movement, the 25-year-old joins fellow international colleagues Isabella Echeverri and Natalia Gaitán to help promote gender equality in Latin America and beyond.
And Santos was keen to acknowledge the privilege felt in using her position to take her contribution within the game off the pitch and into wider society.
