Naasira Mohammed always loved sports, and being a West Inidan, cricket was it. Funny enough, it was in the women in her family who instilled and encouraged this love from a young age.
After studying communications and starting her career as a sports journalist, Naasira was offered the chance to work with her favourite team: The West Indies! She jumped at the chance, which brought her to Antigua.
As of 2018, Naasira became the first female media officer for the West Indies Senior men's team and the second woman to hold that title for any international cricket team.
In this conversation, Naasira shares her experiences living life on tour, and what it was like growing up in her big East Indian family, who never placed boundaries on her as a woman.
