Episode 15 - Kyah Simon

June 26, 2017

 

"One quote I've always lived by is set your goals high, don't limit yourself with low expectations and if it comes from within yourself there's really nothing that can stop you and there's nothing more I love than proving people wrong. So go out there and chase your dreams, prove your doubters wrong and you will find success and happiness within that"

 

My special guest is Kyah Simon. Kyah is a striker for the women’s Australian Matildas and Sydney FC in the W-League. After making her international debut at only 16 years old, Kyah has been to two world cups in 2011 & 2015 and the Olympics last year. She has had a stint overseas with the Boston Breakers and is an integral part of our national team.

You will learn plenty from Kyah Simon in episode 15 of the Talking with TK Podcast.
