WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT RASHIDA...

"It was really great to be part of Rashida's development in last five years. It was great to see the girl with tremendous athletic abilities working so hard to raise her skill level and become one of the best defenders in the states. On the field, Rashida is fearless, tough, and determined to win. She is one of the rare players that make a coach not worried about defense. Her athletic abilities are special and has been a pleasure watching her play. I wish her all the best in the future and she'll be very much missed at NSU." - Sinisa Angelovski, North Shore United Club Soccer Club

"Rashida is an athletic, feisty defender. She works extremely hard and is tough to beat. We have watched her time and time again shut out big time attackers from opposing teams. She is a no-nonsense player and we look forward to adding her to our backline this fall."  - Minnesota Head Coach Stefanie Golan
