When you win a world title or the Champions League, you become a household name.
When you are given a job at a major sporting organisation, you make your mark on the world of sport.
For me, my biggest career highlight came in 2007 when I was appointed as Head of Development for the Women’s Super League (WSL) at Leeds United.
I was fortunate enough to play a significant part in developing and promoting the Women in Football Programme and it is a unique role where you can create a positive change in the lives of players, coaches and fans.
The WSL is one of the most prestigious professional leagues in the world, with a long history and rich history of female players, and in 2015, Leeds United won the inaugural title for the women’s game in the WSL.
In 2015, women made up 45% of the overall number of players in the women�s game and the Women�s Football League (the WSL) made a commitment to reaching 80% female representation by 2020.
The WSL has since seen some great players like Mia Hamm and Ashley Lawrence, and the WFA has been pushing for greater female representation in the game.
In this year’s edition of BBC Sport, we have the chance to talk to the WCL and WSL teams about the challenges that women in the league face.
As part of this year�s programme, I had the opportunity to speak to the head coach of the WFL, Karen O�Brien, and her assistant, Becky O�Connor, and they told me that a lot of work remains to be done for the game to be able to achieve its full potential.
This year, there is a huge emphasis on developing young talent and ensuring that we can get women into top professional football.
We know that we need to be more selective with our players in terms of the places they go to university, but there is still a long way to go.
There is a lot more work to be put in, because there is so much talent out there that needs to be nurtured, and a lot needs to happen.
Karen O�Byrne is the Head of Women� s Super League at Leeds City.
Her assistant Becky OConnor is the assistant manager of the Women���s Football Team.
In the first half of this season, the WGLs Women� Champions League is in the spotlight and the women have been on a run of form, winning the WHL Cup and FA Women� League Women� Cup.
But is it all just about the WPL?
Karen, Becky and I sat down with two of the best women in women� s sport, Mia Hamm, and Ashley Lays, to talk about what it takes to be a successful footballer and how they were able to create a better game for themselves and their team.
In our chat, we talk about how they grew up in a predominantly black community and how it impacted their development.
The interview has been edited for length and clarity.

We have a great mix of women in this country, but we have to be very careful when we talk to them because we don�t want them to see it as an extension of their personal experiences.
Katherine O�Neill (Leeds United) was born in North Carolina and has been playing football since she was nine.
She grew up with the goal of playing for a top team and has played for the U-19 and U-20 sides, but she was more focused on playing for her family and family friends.
As a teenager, she was on the verge of being sent to a local team, but the coach at the time told her that she was too young to play for a team of her own.
So, Katherine made her decision to play with Leeds United and has gone on to become one of their best players to date.
She is a natural goal scorer, and can also make a difference in the middle of the pitch.
I think she has a great understanding of the game, and when you have a lot going on around you, you can see her creativity.
Ashley Lays (Bristol City) is a very talented player, but her most significant contribution is in front of goal.
Her goal scoring ability has helped Bristol City to win the League Championship in 2016 and her ability to find space in the box to finish chances has been a big part of their success this season.The Women� Club team is a young one, but they have been part of some fantastic teams this season and they deserve to be recognised.
Ashlee Lewis (Tottenham Hotspur) has been at Spurs for five years and has developed into a very special player.
She has scored goals for her team and she has also developed into one of England�s top goalscorers.
We think she is going
