Phoebe Schecter | Chair of the D&I Committee at BAFA

Despite growing up in the US, Phoebe Schecter didn’t find her passion for American football until she reached the UK.

Now, she uses the sport as a tool to celebrate, educate and unite others.

Although the game is typically dominated by men, with only 10% of America’s 5.5mn players being women, American football buff Phoebe Shechter is on a mission to increase the representation of women in the sport.
