Mara Gómez lived an unforgettable week after graduating as a professional nurse and debuting in the first category of Estudiantes de La Plata.
The young woman, who with the help of the Villa San Carlos club became the first transgender footballer to join a professional team in Argentina, debuted her Pincha shirt this Monday at the start of the Clausura tournament.
Mara started the match on the substitute bench and entered the second half for Milagros Cortés, when the match was already 2-1 in favor of Platense. The scoreboard ended 3-1 and the goals for the Squid were from Candela Luna (penalty), Milagros Martín and Luz Hernández. The discount was made by Karen Giménez, who scored her first goal with the Pincharrata.
Despite the defeat, it was undoubtedly a special week for the defender, who graduated from a professional nurse after much effort. “In adolescence I was very afraid thinking that I was not going to have a future, that I was not going to be able to fulfill dreams and goals. One day I set out to transform that fear into possibilities, I put the strength and will on it to change my life. I never gave up. Despite all the adversities that life presents to me. Today I fulfill my second goal in my life, today I am a PROFESSIONAL NURSE, “she posted on her Instagram account.
“Today once again I show myself that I can, that no matter how difficult the roads are, nothing is impossible. Happily, NURSE, my new profession”, concluded the inspiring player of Estudiantes, who militates the struggle and the improvement in every space she inhabits.
