Nottingham Forest full back Emily Simpkins - signed during the close season from Leicester City - has been chosen by the FA as one of four young leaders to travel to Malawi in October to support their International Placement programme and help organise and run festivals for children in Africa.
"I'm really excited about being chosen for this honour," says Emily. "I know that it will be a humbling experience and one that I can learn from.
"It will give me the opportunity to work with other young leaders and children in a project called 'Saving Lives.' It is a once in a lifetime chance and I know that it will be very beneficial to me both personally and in my future career."
Forest manager, Lisa Dawkins, adds that the club is thrilled for Emily. "We are delighted that she has been selected by The FA for this honour &emdash; it will be a great experience for her," she says.
"Emily is a lovely girl and looks to be a good acquisition for Forest Ladies. She's a player who shows good potential and has already demonstrated her ability playing in the Northern Division of the Premier League in both our opening victories.
"She has adapted to her right back role well and has shown good pace, skill and vision in that position - although, in the long-term, her attributes could add value in other areas of the field."
Craig Lee, the Nottinghamshire FA's Football Development Officer, has added his congratulations: "I am delighted for Emily. This will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for her.
"She certainly deserved to be selected as a result of the recent Young Leaders Camp at Ascot, as she was highly consistent in her performance over the five days and impressed all the staff with her leadership qualities."
