First Egyptian to Play in WNBA

Dear Coach,


I hope this message finds you well. I am an Egyptian-American basketball player. My name is Reem Moussa and my goal is to become the first Egyptian to play in the WNBA.


In 2017 with KP Brno in Czech Republic, we won the CEWL (Central European Women's League.) Here are some highlights from 2016/17 season: https://youtu.be/3Je6Asqvbgg

This title put me in Egyptian history by becoming the first and only Egyptian to win a European basketball championship. This achievement helped me deliver my message to my community, that girls, just like boys, can dream and achieve anything they set their minds to with hard work and dedication. I have been working hard to deliver this message since I started playing basketball at the age of 13 and realized how women's sports is always neglected in Egypt. Hopefully I can continue to deliver this message by playing in the WNBA. I hope that I could get a chance to prove that I am worthy to be a player in the WNBA and please let me know if you have any suggestions on how to make that dream come true.

With the help of my family and everyone that I have crossed paths with, I achieved a few accomplishments in my career. In 2011, I was able to become the first Egyptian women’s basketball player to get a full scholarship to a NCAA division I institute (Rice University). In 2016, I became the first Egyptian women’s basketball player to play in Division I in Europe and play in EuroCup. Not long after in 2017, I became the only Egyptian basketball player (men’s and women’s) to win a European championship and the only woman to do so in any sport. Lately in 2019, I participated in my first Afrobasket and I was one of only 3 players to be in top 3 in 3 categories; for me they were 3FG% (46.2%), assists (4.5apg) and steals (2.7spg).
