Brianna Westrup was born and raised in Southern California. She played multiple sports growing up, but ultimately decided to seriously dedicate her time to soccer. She was recruited to the University of Virginia, where she played on their Women’s Soccer Team for four years. Upon graduating, she was given the opportunity to continue her soccer career professionally in Denmark and lived in Copenhagen for four months.
She then moved to Newcastle (England) for a year, where she studied for a Master’s degree and played soccer (or football as it’s called there) for Newcastle United Women. After her time in Newcastle, she was able to secure a move to Glasgow, Scotland where she now plays for Rangers F.C. Women. Besides playing the game she loves, her favorite thing about soccer is how it has brought her new friendships and different perspectives.
Through traveling and experiencing a variety of cultures, her eyes have been opened to just how small “her world” can be. Her hope is by engaging with the Water4Her Initiative, she can actively affect positive change through bringing awareness to this cause and helping women and girls across the globe engage in education and skill development that will positively impact their lives.
