Richarlison continues to do amazing things for people from his home state, and we don’t get tired of covering this kind of news.
The Everton star recently donated 6.4 tonnes of food to families from his city of Nova Venécia, and also helped a teacher and three students to go to Taiwan so they could participate in the International Mathematical Olympiad.
This time, things are more related to football. He’s helped a girl who was looking for contributions so she could have a trial at Rio De Janeiro side Vasco da Gama.
Ana Débora had sent videos to Vasco, who gave her a chance, but she still had to travel from Espírito Santo, Richarlison’s home state. That’s when she started asking for help on Twitter. The Everton player saw it and stepped in.
“I was touched by Ana Débora’s story, even because she’s from my state. She is a battling girl who dreams of playing for a big club like Vasco. I contacted her via social media and I’m happy to be able to help her go to Rio de Janeiro to take this trial at the club. I’m rooting for her a lot,” Richarlison told Globo Esporte.
Ana Debora should now travel to Rio and have some medicals so Vasco can be assured she can play at a higher level. She has also spoken to Globo Esporte a little about her story.
“I’ve been playing ball since I was nine, 10 years old, and at first it was pretty hard because I had to play with the boys. My mother didn’t like it very much. I would go out and come back late and hurt. I played with the boys and they didn’t take it easy, but over time my mother got used to it. Now my base is my parents.”

Comecei a jogar bola desde muito cedo por paixão minha, sem incentivo algum, para as meninas que jogam bola sabem que às vezes a família não apoia mesmo, jogo de menino, não quero você fazendo isso, no começo todos começam iguais, bolhas nos pés, hematomas de boladas no corpo, até seu primeiro campeonato, o frio na barriga, a ansiedade pra jogar bem, as decepções dessa carreira que pra mulher não é muito valorizada, mas eu digo pra você, não desista, amanhã, hoje pode ser o grande dia que você tanto espera, faça acontecer, lute, conquiste, só quem se arrisca merece viver o extraordinário!!!
