I was coming home from practice in Poland. And there was a car full of, I don’t know if they were college kids, college age or whatever. But it was a group of guys and somebody did a monkey gesture. And I was like, ‘Wait, am I really seeing this? Is this really happening?’ Because people talk about racism and things happening, you always know these things happen, but when they happen directly to you, like, ‘Damn, this is real.’

Thank you so much for posting this! It is great to hear their perspectives and how they adjust to overseas. I know it's not an easy life and their experiences can be scary, frustrating but amazing, as well. I definitely applaud their courage and the sisterhood they often form while playing around the world.
