Trump retweets Hadhara Charles soccer freestyle video
The star herself was pleased to receive acclaim from such high-profile quarters. "It feels good that Donald Trump shared the video," Charles told CNN. "Here I am not paid. Sports doesn't pay."
Charles, a mother of two, is a specialist in the art of freestyle soccer, which is based on juggling and tricks with the ball using any part of the body.
Tanzania shares much of the continent's love for the beautiful game. But a lack of funding hinders prospects for players and freestylers such as Charles. More than two-thirds of the Tanzanian population live below the poverty line. SAD!
Recognition from President Trump offers a moment of satisfaction for Charles. But her true ambition is to make those magical skills deliver a more comfortable life for her family.
