GETTING TO KNOW FAUSTINE DUFKA
|Faustine Dufka In Her Own Words
I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA and attended an International school. My mom is French, my dad American, and we speak both French and English at home. I took all my classes in French since lower school, so taking math in English freshman year was all new to me! I'm currently working towards a degree in medical anthropology and global health and will be applying to medical school after I graduate. I love traveling, reading, arts & crafts, snowboarding, exploring nature, and going on adventures; anything different or new intrigues me. I have played on six different club teams since I started playing soccer, and this is the first time I have been on a team that gets along so well and works so hard to achieve the same dream. I am eternally grateful to be part of this team and I know that the experiences we share will be part of me forever.

|Best thing about playing for Coach Gallimore
||Lesle always says it like it is. Her honesty and understanding go hand in hand; they are invaluable traits for a coach to have. Her sometimes shocking, yet always truthful, and often funny remarks, have a subtle way of turning into life lessons that will continue to guide us on and off the field, long after we have graduated.
