Maria Toorpakai Wazir: Girls in sport
Maria Toorpakai Wazir is a 22 year-old Squash player from Waziristan, a highly conservative area of Pakistan.
From a young age Maria disguised herself as a boy in order to play sports but as her career grew Maria's squash academy discovered that she was a girl.
Maria received death threats after winning some big competitions which meant that she had to start practising in her bedroom at home. She spent the next three years emailing Squash schools around the world and eventually got a reply from Canadian Squash legend Jonathon Power.
Maria now lives and trains in Toronto, Canada and she is passionate that all girls should be entitled to the same opportunities in sport and education.
