The second part of the AFL’s new promotional campaign features a young Muslim woman from the western suburbs of Sydney and her dream and journey to play Australian Rules football. According to the website, the synopsis for this video is:

“Dema is a young girl of Muslim background from Bankstown, NSW who had no interest in AFL. That all changed when a teacher from her school introduced AFL to their PE classes and her love of the game began to grow. Needing to convince her conservative parents - who originally said never - to play AFL, she eventually joined the Bankstown Bull Sharks in the heart of Western Sydney. Initially hesitant, Dema's father Stephen is now the team’s number one supporter, encouraging her along the way and ultimately to participate in the 2017 Female National Diversity Championships.”
