My name HwaJeong Kim and I am a Saint Paul resident and an active community organizer in the North End neighborhood. My family consists of my cat Zora, a ridiculously lovable puggle named Kepler, and my partner Steven Carlson. I am currently the executive director at Minnesota Voice and a fan of Equal Time Soccer and I am incredibly proud to be the lead community investor for the Minnesota Women’s Soccer Team. Growing up, like so many children my age, I played soccer with the 1999 World Cup Champion US Women’s National Team highlight reel playing in my head. Seeing the women of our country represent the very best of the sport made us all dream about what was possible. But as the US has continued to dominate at the global stage, we have yet to see that dominance translate into professional quality opportunities for women in markets like the Twin Cities and similar markets across the country. Players seeking to develop into world class professionals are left to either be at that level at age 21 and make the jump to the NWSL and national team or take winding roads overseas in hopes of eventually making that jump. It’s clear that more local investment is needed to build a mature development system that can give local players a chance to be showcased closer to home, and the Minnesota Women’s Soccer Team and the USL W League is ready to make that investment. In many ways, Minnesota being the first place to have a community owned women’s soccer team makes perfect sense. The community here fills the stands at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium to support Big Ten Championship Gopher Soccer teams showcasing some of the best Minnesota women’s soccer players each fall. It’s supported countless iterations of professional men’s teams through multiple leagues, team names, and venues. It’s helped make the Minnesota Lynx into one of the most successful franchises in all of sports. This opportunity, to take our community’s passion and invest it directly into new opportunities for our best women’s soccer players, is both incredibly unique and entirely fitting for what we do as Minnesotans — and I want you to join me in making it happen. I’m investing in the Minnesota Women’s Soccer Team because I want our top college players, no matter which program they play for, to have a professional level team to play for over the summer as they continue developing. I want our best aspiring professionals to come home from overseas — when the traditional European calendar has leagues on their break — and have a chance to showcase themselves in the US and in their own community. And I want every young soccer player in Minnesota to be able to watch a diverse set of local women competing at the highest level so they can experience what I experienced — except this time, it will be happening in their own back yard.
