• Meet the Coaches – Haiti Edition!

    January 10, 2013.  Coaches Across Continents is happy to welcome two new faces this week, Cheta Emba and Marie Magolius.  Both Cheta and Marie are sophomore soccer players at Harvard University and will be working with our partner program and Street Football World member, GOALS Haiti.  This is CAC’s first year working with GOALS Haiti.

    Cheta EmbaCheta comes to CAC from the great state of Virginia where she was a GK for the Virginia Olympic Development Program team as well as a captain for her soccer and basketball teams.  At Harvard University she is taking pre-med studies while continuing to play for the soccer program.  She has played in ten games over her first two seasons.  “I want to volunteer for Coaches Across Continents because it unites two things that I am passionate about: service with/for others and soccer.”

    Marie MargoliusMarie is a defender from Acton, Massachusetts who has seen action in 31 games in her first two seasons at Harvard.  She is studying Environmental Science and Nutrition.  Her visit to Haiti will be her first experience outside of the country.  “I’ve always wanted to do community service.., but I’ve never come across an opportunity like this one. When three girls on my Harvard soccer team told me about Coaches Across Continents, I knew I immediately wanted to be a part. Everything I’ve heard about the program is great, and I can’t wait to get involved.”

    Cheta and Marie will be assisted by CAC Founder Nick Gates for this two-week program.
