Hala

Sports development officer

'It's very important to know what your passion is and what your goals are.'

Hala's job combines her football coaching skills with her commitment to getting more women and people from ethnic minority communities into sport.

As the diversity and inclusion officer for the Scottish Football Association, she goes out to talk with individuals, local groups and big organisations about what football can do to get more people involved in the game both as spectators and players.

In the past Hala worked as a policy and engagement officer for the Scottish Government, Govanhill Housing Association and BEMIS Scotland

Now she combines this knowledge with her love of the beautiful game and her volunteer experience with community organisations like the Scottish Interfaith Council and Women in Football.
