She is leveraging her father’s name to promote women’s sports rights.

She is also an ambassador for the Global Goals World Cup, a women’s activist football event. Her debut documentary, “Warriors Women of Football,” highlights the struggles and triumphs of athletes from all around the world. Kelly initially became aware of the difficulties associated with women in soccer when her brother-in-law, a young football coach, emailed her about a girl in Bahia who was playing football in the midst of males since there was no female squad.
They acquired her visa for a junior college in Brooklyn a few years later, and she began playing for them. She is now playing in Australia. Kelly got more intrigued, wondering what it meant for every female in the nation whose soccer skill was on display. Her quest got more serious, and she began studying in order to discover the answers to her thoughts. During her investigation, she learned a lot of new facts that she didn’t know before and believed someone should write about them. With the other 10 females setting up the camera in her flat, they opted to capture the narrative of a girl called Lias.
They decided to do it in many countries across the globe since the film was so striking. They also questioned Brazilian ace Neymar, and according to her, the reason for questioning him was because Neymar was a big fan of a Women’s game when he was younger in Santos.
