picture of Brittany RobbinsQ: Tell us about your role at WSFF...

A: I am the Project Co-ordinator for Women into Coaching 2 - London. WiC2 is a 2 year London wide project targetted at equiping women in eight different sports with coaching qualifications and three sports management courses.

Q: What has your career involved so far?

A: I have lived and worked in three different countries. Born in the USA, I did an anthropology degree that including an exchange year in Australia where I subsequently moved. During my time in Australia, I did a variety of things - from being a student services officer to working for the local Women's Football Association. My passion for sport has continued, since moving to the UK. Before starting at WSFF I motivated West Londoners while working for Active Ealing.

Q: If you could change only one thing to have a positive impact on women and girls' activity levels, what would it be?

A: Increasing the coverage of women's sport on TV and making sure that the female participants are not referred to as girls if they are women. More interest would mean more money and would provide girls and women with more positive role models.
