Women’s World Football Show, Episode 145 features an exclusive interview with Canadian Women’s National Team and North Carolina Courage Goalkeeper Stephanie Labbé. Plus, Canadian sports journalist and broadcaster Sandra Prusina.
Alberta native Stephanie Labbé was an active kid who played hockey in a boys league and grew up to be a world class goalkeeper with the Canadian Women’s National Team. However, as we know, Steph Labbé is more than that. She is a talented writer, businesswoman, and mental health advocate who has opened the doors of conversation on some of the most important topics facing young people today.
As the newest member of the North Carolina Courage, Steph gives us an inside look at her journey back to the NWSL, what its like to be the ‘new kid on the block’ in North Carolina, Canada’s chances at the 2019 Women’s World Cup, and more. (7:35′)
