Being a former high school soccer player, Nwosu brings to light the voice of young women and women of colour. She also posited how the game can be inclusive for all irrespective of the gender.


“A Game for All” being a part of a Nike series, gives some focus to the brand as well.

Grateful to have Directed my first film for @nikewomen on the value of women in sports with an amazing group of young players in Lagos🇳🇬🌍✨! So glad I was able to represent Nigeria and be apart of pushing the narrative of women’s soccer globally and the power of making the game inclusive for all. – thank you to my @girlsinfilm_gif family for having me be apart of this incredible project and giving a voice to young women and women of color.


Another big thank you to my amazing team in Naij who helped put this together! My senior year of high school after playing soccer competitively for 10years I tore my ACL and had not been able to play on that level again. If that never happened I wouldn’t have been able to create this story that could impact more women to play soccer and be apart of a much bigger movement. Gods plan is divine and even the setbacks have purpose!
