As part of the VicHealth This Girl Can VIC campaign, Melbourne AFLW start Lily Mithen headed down to the Geelong West Giants to talk to Claudia Gunjaca about how she felt about pulling the boots on and playing football for the first time.
Turning up for the first time, to a new sport and a new team can be daunting at times, but the inclusive environment the Geelong West Giants created, alleviated these fears immediately.
This Girl Can – Victoria is more than a physical activity campaign.
This is about empowering women to feel comfortable in their bodies and in public spaces. This is about women getting active whenever, wherever and however they choose – without worrying about being judged.
