Khadija Shaw’s Story Of Tragedy, Tenacity & Triumph

When Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw graduated with a communications degree from the University of Tennessee in May, it wasn’t hard to spot her. As she collected her diploma, the Jamaica forward burst into her trademark “infectious” smile and repeated three simple words: “I did well. I did well.” For anyone already acquainted with Shaw’s story, it was an understatement as huge as her grin.

The 22-year-old, nicknamed ‘Bunny’ because of a fondness for carrots at an early age, had completed her degree while simultaneously helping Jamaica reach their first World Cup. She did so after a young life touched by tragedy in her native country, where she lost three brothers and a nephew to gang violence. She also had to contend with her mother’s preconceptions about whether she should play football at all.
