Harriet Pavlou from Margate, London, is a young rising star in freestyle football. She has been posting videos of her fancy footwork online and has already clocked up millions of views.
Going from performing skills in her back garden to appearances in front of 55,000 people at the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City, Pavlou is slowly becoming the talk of the town.
And in the last years she has managed to became one of the most famous freestyle girls world over.
Telling aspiring footballers and fans about how it was in the start, Harriet admits that it is all about love and passion for football.
“I started playing for Arsenal at 18, but it got difficult to travel to London because I live so far away, so I stopped. Did score quite a few goals before, but I played more behind the strikers in a number ten role,” she said.
When Harriet Pavlou was making her first videos she already had a daughter who is now 5-years old. And one can easily imagine what kind of sacrifices she had to make to be where she is now.
According to the young mother, they can now make films together since ‘she does kick the ball about and gets involved’.
In Harriet’s Instagram profile, there are many videos from major tournaments and sponsored campaigns such as Red Bull and Adidas. Harriet still shoots some of her videos on her grandma’s garden.
