Community Connections Facchineri

Today I have interviewed a footballer that plays for whitecaps and Canada soccer named Gianfranco  Facchineri.

I have chosen this specific person because he recently got signed for the whitecaps and started his footballer career recently which means his career is slowly taking off.

What I have learned from him was is you have to be very focused and passionate about what your doing or else nothing will happen if your not determined to what you want to do, he also demonstrates how you can achieve your dreams if you work hard.


  1. why are you passionate about your job?
  • “I’m passionate because I love what I do and I always have ever since I was young”

2.  What obstacles have you faced to get to where you are today?

  • “there have been major setbacks such as minor injuries and self doubt”

3.  what advice would you pass on to someone interested in what you are doing?

  • “My best advice would be to enjoy working hard because of the outcome at the end”

4.  would you be open to further riverside students and if so, how can someone contact you?

  • no answer

5.  how did you get rid of all the people that always doubted you?

  • “the people that doubt you, you have to just ignore and move on”

6.  was being a soccer player your dream?

  • “being a footballer was always my dream”



I then proceeded to talk about how I wanted to become a footballer. here what I said “my dream is to make the whitecaps one day and be a soccer player I’ve been player and practicing every single day I hope I can achieve my dreams one day”

he then responds “I hope you can too bro. All the best”



I gathered all the photos from his instagram page that I have linked already.
