    1:03 Grateful, But Far From Done with Kristina Maksuti

    Kristina Maksuti is a professional soccer player for SV Meppen, playing in the 1.Bundesliga in Germany. After graduating from University in New York, she was left frustrated with the lack of opportunities football had to offer. She packed her bags and moved to Australia with the idea of escaping football and starting over. One thing led to another, she winds up playing with a 2nd tier team there, gets a call to play for the Albanian National team, continues on to play in Iceland, Switzerland, Norway, and now Germany. The constant burning passion for the beautiful game has allowed her to travel the world as a footballing nomad and now has her playing in one of the best, if not the best, league in the world. This is Grateful, But Far From Done with Kristina Maksuti.

    1:02 Leaving Home at 15 with Nico Gaitan

    1:02 Leaving Home at 15 with Nico Gaitan

    Nico Gaitan is a professional soccer player for Club Villa Dálmine, a second tier club in Argentina. He's back in the country applying his trade over 10 years since he first embarked on this journey to be a professional. He left his home in New York at the age of 15, in search of an opportunity, and a dream that needed to be attacked. Nico has played around the world, USA of course, Boca Juniors U-20, OFI Crete FC in Greece, spending some time under the tutelage of this guy you might have heard of...Gennaro Gattuso? Some years in the 3rd division in Spain with two different clubs and now back again to a country which he explains helped shape his game and mentality. "I think Argentina may be the toughest place to play in the world." We explore this major decision to leave home at a young age; the benefits, the hardships, the stories and the experiences. The role of optimism and gratefulness in his journey, the mindset of going out and getting it rather than waiting for the "perfect opportunity", politics, failure and so much more. This is Leaving Home at 15 with Nico Gaitan.

    Make My Own Path: Germany with Dylan Williams

    Make My Own Path: Germany with Dylan Williams

    Back by popular demand we pick up with our co-host Dylan's story after his Sweden time came to a close. Entering another era of uncertainty, he decided that his best option was to book a one way flight and get after it. It helped that our other co-host Sean was already on the ground in Germany! And thus began a time of haters, pizza money, making a name for himself and trials on trials on trials. Not to mention highlights of a career thus far like playing Bayer Leverkusen and Hannover 96. A path created by making mistakes and learning from them, navigating poor situations and creating advantages, understanding that there is a bigger picture, creating a network of trust, rejection x 3, proving yourself right and tons more. This is Make My Own Path: Germany with Dylan Williams
