She was unable to find a place to play cricket during school, but eventually found a coach who taught her how to play hardball. Uzma’s skills and talents as an athlete helped her succeed early on in her playing career.
Cricket was the first sport where Uzma felt that a great deal of effort was needed for the game. In other sports in the past, she was able to let her athleticism carry her performances, but cricket demanded a further sense of focus and dedication.
After playing in Canada on the national team, Uzma moved to the US and has seen a great deal of improvement within Team USA. She has seen them become more competitive with blossoming talent over the years. Uzma hopes to add value to the team’s strength on the international stage.
