Ola! I'm Jasmina Santos-Campbell (but you can call me Jaz). You've probably heard of me and my football team the Bramrock Stars before. No? Well, you will soon because we're almost famous!
Forming the Stars was my genius idea - you see I need to prove to Mae (that's my mum!) that I'm a football star so she'll want to come back home.
The idea was the easy part, though. Now I've got a team of seven very different girls and we need to work together, to be taken seriously as footballers.
We are the DREAM TEAM and we're going to show the world that girls CAN play football!
